Mixed media on canvas, collage, painted, printed and found papers, paint, ink, white pen.
A friend thought I could do something with an old Somerset Studio art journal calendar dated 2003 so I have decided to alter it. I’m leaving one side of each page as it is, art works and am altering the calendar part of the book. On this collage I have used music, stamped textured wallpaper, punched paper from old music machine, vintage negative film with stitching in knitting ribbon and real flowers under plastic held on with tape.
I used gesso on the page first, and used an old calendar and diary page for the collaged bits. I drew on watch hands and numbers and finished off with smudged time related quotes in pen.
I also did a digital collage for time
It’s been a while since I did anything in an actual sketchbook but today I have a collage. The dinosaur is actually a piece of wrapping paper and the brown thing I drew is supposed to be a sack [! – looks like a dog bowl]. Unlike digital I can’t easily erase pen. Also another snowman drawn on the tablet [Galaxy note]. I seem to be drawing lots of snowmen recently and we haven’t even got snow at the moment, we do have lots of rain, wind and dark days – miserable.
Mixed media – white pen, brusho inks, collage [vintage book extracts], posca pens, aquamarkers, pens.
This was the collage before I drew on it.
