Blue is my favorite color and I love it with orange, it's complimentary. This is a collage piece I worked on during my last class. It has different types of papers underneath, including my favorite mailing envelopes and some altered magazine pages.
While working on this I discovered something fun. If I wrote in cursive and connected all the words and then over-lapped each line with the one above it, I could write a secret message. It is not readable! This one happens to be a love letter. My teacher suggested I take that one step further and write either a word or letter much larger. I created the word love (also connecting the letters) on a piece of watercolor paper using ink and then collaged it onto the canvas board.
It started to remind me of graffiti. So I wanted to make it look like it had been on a wall outside and the colors had started to fade and run. I used oil pastels to do this, choosing several different shades of blue and orange. They were a lot of fun to work with, as I could blend them with my fingers. I also used some chalks for the same effect, and could easily rub them off if needed. The bottom layers have acrylic paint on them. Need to frame it or find some way to varnish it. For now I like it propped up in my art area.
