Day #2 of the workshop began with Elizabeth demoing her collage technique.
She uses her board painting as the color guide for placing the paper.
The paper is ripped by hand. It is a no scissors zone!
Here are some of the finished, or almost finished projects:
|Karen and her apple, or was it an orange? I love how she used a variety of printed pages to create the tablecloth.|
|This is Joan's rooster. She sat next to me and was so generous sharing her paints.|
|Koi fish in a pond with lily pads.|
|MK is definitely a talented painter. She chose not to cover her mangoes completely with the paper. It works!|
|Believe it or not, this is the gallery owner, Melissa.|
|Lina and her apple. Lina was visiting from Denmark with her husband. He was part of a Danish crew racing a sailboat during race week. She stumbled onto the workshop too.|
And this is my conch house.
I did not have enough pink paper for the house and no one else had any, so I used a combination of pink, orange and red. So then I had to change the color of the windows and the door. So much for the road map. Right now the windows look like they are floating on the house. To ground them I think I will add some mullions in maybe yellow. I like it. It looks very scrappy- a happy scrappy conch house. What a great souvenir.
And here is Elizabeth and me with her finished apple. She is so talented.
She has published a book and has a DVD detailing her technique.
