I've cut the painted tissue paper to make the silhouette of the animals. I love the diversity of the surface of the painted paper, it adds so much interest to the painting. Now for the collaging - I choose the papers that have the colors I am interested in using. I lay them on the canvas to see how they look. Such a variety to chose from.
I feel inspired to make some collages with my new painted tissue paper. Something simple. I have two rectangle shaped canvases, tall and narrow. Perfect for a Giraffe and a Flamingo. That's what I will collage. Colorful and fun. First I cover the canvas with a dark painted tissue paper. I draw the animals on white drawing paper to make a template Then using the template I cut the painted tissue paper for the main body of the animal. Pink for the flamingo and yellow ochre for the giraffe.
