I have added more collage to the swing and more people in the foreground. Then I have added some painted acrylic to make the harsh edges of the paper collage blend. There is still more collage and paint needed before the background is ready to receive the swingers and the swings which are being drawn in colored pencil separately and will be added to the painting using a collage technique when they are completed. This mixed media painting is a translation of Bernadette Claffey’s wornderful carnival photo of swings. you can view this photo by accessing redbubble.people.bernadetteclaffey and viewing the carnival piece in her portfolio.
