It's been a busy week at The Little White Studios and it ended today with a fabulous one to one workshop creating texture in your collage background. Our student is currently attending some weekly sessions with Karen and I to learn how to create a collage on canvas using layering, texture, paint and drawing.
This piece is very much a work in progress as it will take several sessions to layer up the background to acheive the textured, effect that our student wants for her piece. We began by covering the canvas with old music sheet paper and book pages, and then building up texture with Modge Podge before adding paint and then more ephemera and yet more paint. Stamped flourishes were added to create even more texture!!
The canvas was really starting to take shape, the next step was to create an Angel as the main focus of her piece. This was gently sketched and then filled randomly with white acrylic paint, in preparation for the angels features and more textures which will be added later.
But time got carried away with us and we had to end the creative morning, so this is still very much a work in progress, we have several sessions to go yet before this piece will be complete, however, I thought you may like to share my Students journey with her and watch her canvas develop week by week.
