Doxie & Dragonflies

Acrylic collage

This was designed using my contour drawing of the dog and dragonflies. This is the first time I’ve painted the board background color first with a brush instead of using the hand-painted collage papers. I felt the previous background textures were too distracting and opted for a smoother, less busy texture for it. This technique was also done for the “Love Birds and Cockatoo”.
