Geometric Backgrounds Sketchbook Journal page

Geometric colored pencil background -
I created this to use as collage material for the background in my paintings.
It worked well, both as one piece and
cut up in pieces.
Now I need to create more for a variety.

And of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone - I had to add more stuff -
a quote I love -
sorry I did not note who the author was - my bad!

Backgrounds can be as much fun as the subject matter itself.
I got the idea of creating collage material for my back grounds from Annie Williams, mixed media artist. She paints patterns on paper and collages them for her background, then paints a still life on top.

Check out the unique backgrounds here:
Rachel Ann Austin creates unique
and interesting backgrounds
for her colorful paintings with
materials as simple as a map.
