A Carrot and a Flower- Acetate, Collage and Painting

Spark lesson 3 carrot with ribbonSpark lesson 3 daffodil

For our third lesson Lynn taught us how to paint and use collage on acetate (clear film-like paper) and on plexiglass. I have  been experimenting with it a little, and made this carrot and flower. The carrot is collage under the clear film, then painted with gesso, whereas the flower is drawn with a sharpie then painted underneath with acrylic. I haven’t tried the plexiglass yet- seems a bit intimidating but will give it a try soon I hope. It is fun to try new things as it helps keep expectations low, and so it is easier to just enjoy the process.
