Altered Art Baroque Collage

This was a painting I started in Lynne Perella's class "Go Baroque" at Artfest. We started with a photocopy of a person and collaged it onto a gessoed background. We started with a type of paper called roisin paper. It was very large two feet by 4 feet. Then we used Portfolio oil pastels to color the background and the body and face of our subject. We also added acrylic paint and strips of patterned paper to give the baroque feel. We chose some black and white copies of architecture to include in the painting. THis was so much fun to do. I would like to do a smaller one next using some of the same techniques. The hair was composed of paper napkin roses. Real ribbon for the neck.Lynne was a great teacher and helped each student the whole day.
