Collage to Painting

I've been experimenting a bit with making a collage and then using that collage as the inspiration for a painting. It's sort of like doing a sketch or composition plan before making the painting. My original collage is 5x7 inches and the painting was done with acrylic on canvas board that's 11 x 14 inches, so the proportions are slightly off for that reason and also because I didn't do the best job of eye-balling my space divisions.


  1. Great idea Jo. This is inviting in both editions.

  2. Jo, I love this technique. Your original collage is luscious and your painting has nice textural interpretations.


Thanks for visiting my blog; Let's talk about it.
