I think the use of more subtle colours over the surface is allowing the black outlines to jump forward. As I went through a couple of inches of China marker making them, regardless of my fruitless attempts at not breaking it. I might have to retry charcoal with other materials… at this point, I realize the substrate I draw on bears a great influence on the outcome and I have so many more collage ideas I want to explore… only, I need to stay to materials that are un-glossed, I think.

I’m enjoying the glossy, tablecloth patterned wallpaper I glued to the page in this one and how the green gouache doesn’t fully adhere to it. It adds a rustic printing feel to the work.

Stay tuned…
