Rousseau and Storm

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
