Itinerary 8

The verb of the week from Art Journal Caravan is 'compose'. The thinking behind my mixed media pages was something like this: am I myself when I am composed or when I am not composed? I started with an acrylic paint background, added the paper image of the headless figure and some music (from a paper napkin), and then wrote on the pages using Sharpies. More colour was then added using water soluble oil pastels.

Moving onto to my digital work, I actually created two, quite different, pieces this week. Both were built up using different layers and then colouring parts that started out as black & white.
