Thank you Sonia.It's all magazine strips.I created the birds from a picture of a 1950s horror film which had a nasty machine in it!Most of all I find the fashion pages useful for texture and colour.You might notice a green leather chair in the foreground,that was a happy mistake!
Ha ha, I've spotted part of the chair!... This is a good game!
Oh yes I see it, Bauhaus style.
I really like this piece, especially the birds. Is it collage and paint?
Thank you George.I haven't done much collage but it was fun tearing strips of coloured magazine paper and fashioning them into birds and trees etc.
I really like the way you have put this together. A great picture.
Thank you Tricia and Helen for your useful comments.I might even have a go at doing another collage,it certainly exercises the brain!
Wow! Amazing Thea! Very Salvador Dali! Well done.
You can also use this feature (on your phone or tablet) to test whether you should add more tonal contrast into paintings.
When you've finish a piece, take a photo, then change the contrast or the highlights. You can then see if you could work into the shadows or lighten areas.
