One of my goals as Springtime approaches, is to incorporate bees into three collage/paintings measuring 11″x14″. Above, you will see the beginning stages of my work using my blossom sketch, bees I’ve drawn and cut out pieces of paper. I find as I walk outside and see beautiful pink blossoms on the trees and pink and yellow tulips popping, I want to incorporate those into my artwork.
Shown above are the blossoms I painted this morning as well as the background color and the collaged leaves. While working, the thought crosses my mind, “do I want to apply any ink to these paintings, or just stay with embroidery for detail?” Time will tell!
Have a great rest of your week!
