I am continuing to have fun with digital collage. I find that what I enjoy layering are my own paintings and sketches along with a photo image. Its the mystery that keeps me going with these pieces. Its the element of surprise that gets me excited as I work. Seeing something cool pop through from underneath is one of the things I love about this medium.
For this piece I used a photo I shot in NYC of a lamp post with "love me" written on it in graffiti, along with a sketch and the mixed media painting below. I had alot of fun creating this painting using layers of collage, stamping, and two of my fav colors. . . payne's gray and raw umber mixing each with varying amounts of titanium white for lights and darks.

I am sharing this over at Paint Party Friday today.
We are expecting unseasonably warm temps for winter in NY so I am planning on some long walks at the trail! Wishing you a lovely weekend!
