Here's my inspiration for this week, collage art! Honestly, I've never been a huge fan of collage art and have never been into creating it. I do find these pieces particularly interesting though. This weeks MATS e-course assignment was to create a piece of wall art using collage. It was challenging for me, and I'm not sure I was entirely successful, but here is what I came up with:
I used some hand painted and drawn elements and embroidery, and then put it together in Photoshop with some digital pieces as well. I was lucky to be assigned my two favorite colors to work with, green and blue! I've always loved greens and blues that cross the green/blue line. :) We were supposed to practice working with abstracts, but I've always had a hard time with that, literal imagery always creeps in no matter how hard I try! All in all, this wasn't my favorite assignment but I learned a lot working on it. I'm ready for next week!
