Copper Sunflowers on Mauve

Copper Sunflowers on Mauve

Acrylic collage

This sunflower design changed dramatically since I began the initial design.

I had arranged the petals on an oblong board, 16.5 x 35.5. Leaf shapes entered the design, which were later taken out and a bright red vase added. It was edited and transformed to a square format, much to my liking. Various colors also changed from my original plan to ones more harmonious. This evolving design is challenging and forces me to allow for better compositional placements of shapes and colors. The results are more pleasing than I imagined and I’m happy just to play with the shapes.

Collage is so forgiving that anyone can create in this media. A simple drawing jumpstarts a composition and pieces can be added or subtracted as one works. It can be set aside and critiqued later.
