Is she an artist’s model? Or just a woman enjoying the warmth falling on her through the blinds which provide seclusion?

A mixed media piece with collage, contour drawing and distortion!

Image 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm).

Last post of the year – wish it was warm enough to sit around in the nude!

Happy New Year.

Hmm. An ink drawing collaged onto decorated papers. Sadly the paper turned out to be very delicate and one of her legs fell off in the process – poor lady! But I like the picture anyway. Image 8×10.5 inches (20×27 cm).

A collage of decorated papers on a monotype background. I made this when exploring the possibilities of translating a tonal design into collage. Image 8×5.5 inches (20×14 cm).

A tiny collage picture (ATC size) which includes a reproduction of a detail from a larger painting. It is so strange how the tilt of the head, the surrounding colour etc. changes everything – she looked quite happy before!

The original portrait sold long ago but this new version is available as a print in various formats here.

Most of my current collages are made with decorated papers I prepare myself but this one I ‘made earlier’ has always been one of my favourites. The shape of the house is more-or-less as it should be but it was actually black and white.   The collaged additions are not Caribbean!

Reproduction and iPhone case available here.
