Venetian Facade - Collage
Comments

Well you've pulled it off Christine! Totally Venice :)

Avril is our queen of rust and peeling paint but you have done ever so well with the collage too. Very detailed and convincing looking Venetian doorway Christine. Well done!

Lovely and the striped pole is just such a super addition - you know it is Venice when you see one of these!

I see worn cracked plaster and peeling paint Christine, a good job well done!

Thank you Sarah, Satu, Thea and Fiona for your lovely comments. There is something very satisfying, to me at any rate, about tearing up these tiny bits of paper and creating a picture!

This is super, Christine. What a wonderful idea and technique.

This is great Christine. The surface textures you create with paper are very real and the writing I find intriguing . Thanks for mentioning my work too! I feel quite embarassed!

It must be good, it started the "one cornetto" song off in my head LOL

Lol! I know what you mean about admiring Avril's expertise! But this is super, Christine! I love the way the writing on the collage papers lends the requisite textures and the palette is simply gorgeous.

Inspired by Avril Soldani's wonderful paintings I thought I would see if I could achieve that peeled paint effect using collage. I now have even more admiration of Avril's expertise!
