When my wonderful (almost) neighbour Carole suggested “folds” for this weekend’s drawing challenge, I thought of the origami I keep failing at in such spectacular ways...lol.
In the china cabinet are two tiny origami cranes right beside a tiny Alice, a present from a visiting friend, and I can’t even begin to think how such a tiny thing is folded. Chopsticks maybe?
So I decided that a painting with a bit of collage might be more suited to my style, specifically tissue paper collage.
I love using tissue paper and moving it with the brush and the mat medium, and making it fold in soft waves on the painted page.
So here is my piece for this week, The Dove. I love the soft folds in the texture, I love the folds of the dove’s wings, I love the gentle folds in the hands. It’s a good one.
When you have a chance, come hop over to Carole’s for links to the folding bunch.
