Two Rams in the mountains

These two rams seem very close like good friends. I had to think of a dark background for the paler one and a light background for the colourful one. So the mountains came handy as a dark contrast and the sky as a light contrast, all in one picture.

I did the collage of the two rams before the background so I could obtain the right result for the light and dark values

Duck family collage

I present you today a little duck family in my collage collection of cute animals. I find the colours in animals so inspiring. I add my personal touch keeping my imagination going looking for bits of paper to match more or less the reference picture… I always end up with something quite different!

Puffins mixed media collage

These amazing birds are a work of art with their fabulous colours. A great subject for a mixed media collage. Puffins breed in large colonies  on coastal cliffs or offshore islands, nesting in crevices among rocks or in burrows in the soil. I used a mixture of different papers to do the rocks in the foreground adding a lot of texture to the painting.
