. . . used more brown
to make a companion piece for the collage I posted yesterday. I feel like I should make collages in a series, but my attention span only lasts for about two at a time, which is not much of a series. Then I want to move on to something else, another color combination, just about anything that has inspired me as I wander around my basement.
I attach the collage elements to the watercolor paper with gloss medium, just because I happened to have a large bottle of it around. It is pretty much transparent when it dries, and leaves a varnish-like finish on each piece. But the pieces are still tactile, bumpy, textured. Is that the way they are supposed to be? Or should I put another finish on them to make them smooth, if that's even possible?
