I've always wanted to experiment with collage but not known where to start. Then I discovered you tube! You can find videos that teach you how to do a lot of things there. I watched several artists create collages, journal pages etc...then started in.
In this collage, I began with a hard board, and lots of gesso. Then began to glue and add paper and objects . After that, I added the paint. This is a collage done with a print of one of my original paintings, called "The Breezy Buckskins".
I find collage totally absorbing. It's such a "thinking, problem solving" medium. Since I began this kind of work, I find myself coming in from the studio at night, with feelings of exhaustion! :) I think that's what I love about it most, it's a challenge. But I felt the end result was worth it.
You can find this horse art collage for sale in my Etsy shop.
