Collage Painting Process, Part 1

July 24, 2014

My collage painting process

Stage #1 Gesso mixed with a pale yellow acrylic paint applied to the canvas boards, then once dried adding an application of large red stencil lettering over the top

Stage #2  Collage Elements Added

Stage 2 of the series

Stage #3 a paler red than the stencil is dobbed over the entirety of the canvas surface, then using a paper tower either thinning or removal of areas of paint

Stage #4 Used bubble-wrap as a “stencil” to paint with yellow acrylic paint some strips of color. This was to delineate the stems of plants. Then used yellow acrylic with a rubber stamp for brilliant white flowers (gesso) applied thickly. After this color the stamped area with yellow paint.  Then added a couple more collage items to each canvas.
