Time to put on your Collage Hat and get STICKY!! The Paper Landscape is my fancy name for an abstract landscape collage made from papers, many of which are created by you, the artist. We will make a variety of textured papers to use in our landscape paintings. These could be Tyvek, marbled paper, multi-layer monoprints, textured paper, embossed foils, and more.
Golden Fluid Acrylic Paints - My 5 "must have" colors are:
Gel medium, soft or regular, gloss
Substrates: cradled wood panels preferred, but stretched canvas or canvas boards are OK. Home Depot has 1/4 inch MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) available in 2x4 foot sheets that they will cut for you at no charge.
Any collage ephemera (old paperback books, maps, foreign language printed material, failed w/c paintings, and stencils you may have (optional).
Short handled nylon brushes suitable for acrylic and w/c.
The usual stuff - 32 oz. water container, palette knives, paper towels, scissors, palette, brayer, squeegee from the $ store, spray water bottle, hair dryer (optional), spray alcohol bottle (optional), textured foil lids found on Dannon Light and Fit yogurt (optional).
