“Find a face” #18. Project for a month. Torn telephone book pages collage.

face 18

For the current page I decided to use a special technique: torn telephone book pages collage. Telephone book paper is absorbent and I often use it for messy projects. Recently I made alcohol inks, using telephone book as my work surface cover. I ended up with alcohol ink colored pages.

I collaged and painted the background first, then sketched the face with ruff lines. Then I collaged the face and framed it in hair painted with acrylics.
