Putting together an array of lines, shapes, and colors can be quite spiritual in a way. I find myself totally involved in the process in making selections that follow some inner judgement. I have decided to accept what the inner “muse” chooses. This is a basic respect for the artistic process.
First I select items of interest that I may find in my collection, a box of pictures, other concrete objects such as feathers, torn cardboard netting, foil, and other things that I have saved.
On a white sheet of paper, or another color that you like, you can arrange your choices to make a picture. Make a realistic picture .
Does this look like a beach?
Maybe you’d like to put together a collection of attributes to make the eye wonder. The question in such an activity is what will work. What will seem like a picture complete in itself? This may take most of your time as you move things to different areas until you feel it’s finished.
Please tell me what you think on the comment page. Is this collage finished or would you place some things differently?
