First Steps

Tonight I began working on a new collage. My first step (as you can see above) is to paint the background with acrylic paints. I never really painted with acrylics until about a year ago (I had always painted in oils), but I've found that I love them much more than oil paints. They are bright, don't smell, and dry very quickly; the perfect medium for an impatient girl like me! I'm not exactly sure what this collage will turn out to be, but I am thinking of continuing my series of bird collages. I'll show you the results when I'm done!

(Materials [so far]): wood, acrylic paint
