We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I so didn’t like how thumbnail of this large canvas looks on RB. I decided to split view into two canvases. I am not sure if I am allowed to do it here. Please correct me if I am wrong and I will remove these two.
It is another experiment of mine. I tried to make a collage over the structured by gel, paste and acrylics canvas. Couldn’t resist painting a little over the pieces of paper though to bring in some shadows and texture.
The biggest challenge with this work was to find the right pieces of the body, so they would match together proportionally and in general lighting. I just had an idea, but not a final image in my head. In the end I had to use parts from a few different models. For head I used an old mannequin picture. I had a good dozen of versions before I decided on this layout and pieces. But it was a great fun :)
Mixed media on canvas 50×100cm.
