Leslie shared with us a great way to make a collage. You can do it too! So easy, just visit http://www.picmonkey.com/. You can choose the layout, and how many photos to add, and then you can type a message, change colors and all of that. I tried to put my name on it, but It did not save. It’s late and I am ready for bed. That’s my story and I am sticking to it.
See more artist collage’s, and take a last look at all the great art that was created in Leslie Saeta’s September Art Challenge.
Eight PM and I am just now finishing my painting for today. This is the second attempt.The first one I started by simply dripping and spreading paint. Just making marks, and layering some color.
A lot of interesting little shapes came out of the splotches, and that is one thing that is missing from the work I am showing you. I completely overworked the first piece. It did not scan well, and I should have left it alone, but I tried to make it better… and botched it.
This may need more work. I was thinking of adding some pastel seaweed in front of one or two of the fishes. And maybe some larger yellow spots. I am happy with this, the magenta does not stand out quite so much in person. There is a bit of blue over those areas, and it tones them down. In the first work, the blues were looking neon bright in areas, and now it is the magenta and yellows.
Metallic paint was used over the fish.
I used a watery metallic copper over some of the fish. On the others I used a thinned pearl mixed with turquoise or blue. You can see the reflection here. The letters are chipboard. I think that is what they are called. One of the fish looks as if he is upside down, but of course you know, that is his camouflage in a hostile environment!
I always remember this poem wrong. It is one of my favorites, but one word always gets replaced in my mind. Maybe it is all those years in Choir singing “Silent Night”. I was trying to be so sure, I would write the correct word on the canvas. As you can see, I goofed again. I am laughing at myself, I was being so very careful.
I am the quiet type, so it makes perfect sense to me. My apologies to Lord Byron and to my college Poetry Professor Otto Pfeiff.
I am not entirely happy with this one. Her eyes and lips were there from the start, but her nose never made an appearance. I tried several but nothing worked. Maybe I will give her a nose job in a day or two.
