Acrylic Collage

The last assignment in the Carol Nelson workshop was collage.  Carol completed a lovely poppy collage as an example.  I began the 1st painting last fall as an experiment of stretching printed fabric instead of canvas.  Next I coated the fabric with several coats of matt medium.  Then I floated  acrylic paint and spray paint in water on the surface.  In the abstract paint design I saw the image below, and completed it with Golden Acrylic Open.  The bird is collaged painted paper from an old paperback book.

The second college is my interpretation of a poppy collage.  It is completed using hand painted papers with Golden Acrylics on canvas.
