Continuing to Collage
Having made the decision to add newspaper to an already created oil painting is no small feat! Using painstaking care to measure and cut the paper to fit the painting requires multiple views, steps and measurements to create the illusion of being one continuous piece. Also, allowing for white to show through near the painting work allows the eye to see dimension and gives depth to the artwork that placing the paper directly next to the painting lines would not create. Keep up to date with new decisions and work weekly - next week might even be the week this work gets named!
