|Diving Platform at Cove Lake|
The little photo is of a stone diving platform in the lake where I swam as a teenager.
I chose papers in colors that echo those in the photo and then tore them to build the collage, using deli paper as my substrate. After trimming it to size I mounted it on board, ready to hang. The photo acts as the focal point in the composition.
Most of the papers are from my stack of hand painted papers. In future posts I'll show you a few other ways I've used photographs.
