This piece has a lot going on. Techniques used are photography, cut and paste, tissue paper, and PhotoShop. First I collaged a photo of my paternal great grandmother and grandfather holding my father. I added the house, the persimmon, homemade tissue papers of which there are three different types and finally I added a self-portrait of yours truly. After scanning the collage I added the PhotoShopped leaves created from tissue paper. I slightly posterized the piece in PhotoShop. I made the background paper using alcohol inks on freezer paper.
This is a very fun spread. I am very interested in handmade tissue paper. Tell us more????
This is a wonderful piece. You have brought so many different elements together to make a powerful composition. This piece is one of my very favorites to date.
Did you paint that self-portrait? It's quite different from the drawings you've uploaded! Very good. Would love to see a blue background for comparison...
wow! i wonderment of layers.
I really love this one. It tells a story and has emotion.
