Layering, Line, Wash, & Gesture

Been recently experimenting with layering with washes of different shades, adding lines (with carbon), some with collage of off-cuts of old watercolour paper – deciding on how to move along with the development of the work.

Landscape …Over Collage | #02

The second of two experiments, layer upon layer over a collage of work (an old Matisse calendar!). The challenge was finding the image within the layers and developing and uncovering the motif as the process went on.
