Acrylic collage

This particular design of my daughter’s electric guitar has been on my mind for a long time. I worked from some old sketches and photographs, but also did a series of just sections of this instrument. Most of the time I use tracing paper to compile my sketches, then edit during the process of designing the composition.

As I began cutting the colors and shapes, my design changed and evolved into something different from what I thought would be the final composition. That happens a lot. It is good to go with the flow and change if it’s needed. I also altered the major colors halfway through the process. I was pleased with the painting when it was completed. Sometimes half the fun is not knowing how it will turn out at the end — surprises can be pleasant!

The support for this collage is an Ampersand Hardboard Panel and has been primed with Acrylic Gesso.
