The Dancer

I've started this new 8" x 10" collage piece I've titled "The Dancer". This piece is on canvas that I collaged with decorative cut papers that were glued to the canvas.

Once the glue dried, I sketched "The Dancer" on top of the papers and then filled her in with Golden's Black Gesso.

I've used Golden's Yellow Ochre, Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold and Iridescent Bright Gold (Fine) paints on the sides of the canvas and around the edges on the front of the collage.

That's it so far. Just trying to continue to be Creative Every Day :)

I'm digging this...the dancer in me appreciates the fact that you gave her some curves!

Great texture in the paper selection too, really nice piece! Stay creative!
