Truth in the Distance

I’ve been experimenting with my own brand of acrylic painting of faces. I still use watercolor crayons only not in abundance like I used to. I’ve also been painting over collaged papers.

I try to get a large enough piece of collage paper for the face though. I don’t want any bumps or anything where her eyes  might be. It’s still hard to get all the air bubbles all out.

Then I collage the whole canvas in a patchwork fashion with patterned paper and book text. There are often spaces of canvas open but I like to think that adds to the charm of the piece. >.<

On the whole, I’m pleased with this piece. It’s not as easy as sketching the figure on paper then painting, but I think the results are worthwhile. The whole process is very addictive too.

I’ve been doing other things as well. I just haven’t had the motivation to take photos. I’m so lazy! I’ll try to remedy that malady this week.
