|Henri Rousseau - Surprise|
In Jane Davies Color class we were tasked to created an abstract landscape evoking climate or temperature. Our choices were tropical, humid heat; dry desert heat; cold winter night; a chilly autumn day; or warmth of a fire on a cold rainy day. I chose tropical, humid heat and Henri Rousseau's piece Surprise was my inspiration. I created the piece using handmade papers that have been accumulating for months. The papers are made on deli paper and left over acrylic paint. I simply use up the paint from my palette and brush it on the deli paper. I then tore pieces of it to collage Storm.
