Turn Your Back on Me
I am taking a Jane Davies Color class. We are in our final week and one of our last projects is to create an abstract landscape using warm colors. This was a complicated piece for me. It seems that I am incoporating what I have learned from Jane's Text and Image and Color classes into this landscape. In the collage process I used newspaper, self-made papers (mostly from deli paper), acrylic paint, magazine pieces, pan pastels, and watercolors. This image is what I would expect to find in Kenya or in South Africa. I particularly like how there is a triangle formed by the elephant/butterfly, the tree, and the dragonfly. I am warmed by the colors. To me they really represent the heat of Africa.
