Unlisted Number ~ watermedia collage


22x15 Fabriano 140 lb hot press paper, charcoal drawing of a mannequin profile, then watercolor, gouache, and gift wrap paper from the dollar store used as collage in parts on her blouse. I had painted this figure before only reverse profile using transparent watercolor. The hot press paper was treated first using a technique I described here on AMAE forum and in my recent blog post where you lay phone book pages down then peel them off, hence the title.
C&C welcome

Love love love love love! If I looked like that, I'd have an unlisted number too! She is pensive and beautiful, but she looks sweet too.

Double plus good. Striking composition and excellent technique and thanks for the overview of the development process.

Thanks again Cyndi and you, too, Carly!

Re: Unlisted Number ~ watermedia collage

Just a question...I took at look at your blog. Do you always use phone book pages? or would other old book pages work? and I would be working on canvas...have you tried the technique on canvas?
