Waratah


I'm doing this Waratah collage as a commission for a friend who has moved from Canberra to Vienna (Hi Penny!), and I thought it would be a bit of fun to show the stages on my Blog...

This blows my anonymous cover quite a lot, but, meh, I don't care any more. Amongst other things, I am a collage artist, and represented by The Green Dog Gallery in Gundagai. My work sells s l o w l y and takes me ages to do. I'm not trying to make a living this way, just doing what I enjoy.

Anyway. The collage area is 30 x 40 cm, and the Bainbridge board is primed with acrylic medium, which also seals the pencil drawing. I'll post the next stage pic soon, probably tomorrow...

  1. Oooh, a waratah collage - I can barely wait! I know they take hideously long but you do such beautiful work. I've told you that Mum takes people on tours of her bedroom to show of her rose collage haven't I?

  2. Thank you :)

    LOL - I'll put a pic of her rose collage up here for everyone to enjoy (and to save us ALL traipsing through her bedroom ;)

    Penny-in-Vienna has tried to comment, but Blogger is being horrid and doesn't post what she's written...
