Citra Solv Collage Pear ~ Robert Burridge Workshop ~ Dallas ~ Nancy Standlee Texas Daily Painter


"Dallas Collage Pear"
9 x 12 Citra Solv collage pear on canvas

I posted yesterday about the Robert Burridge workshop in Dallas where Bob demonstrated making collage papers using Citra Solv and he did a collage demo of a pear using the papers made from a National Geographic magazine. I guess this pear should be named the "Burridge Collage Pear" because I was looking at his piece on the wall while working on this one. Torn pieces of the papers were adhered with liquid or gel medium, and the background was painted with acrylic and the collage was glazed with acrylic paint. There are other examples of Citra Art on the website at www.citrasolv.com. Be sure you use the concentrated version which does not have a sprayer and have fun. Click HERE for Bob's page on their site.


One of Bob's demos today of an abstract work and he does make it look super easy. If you'd like to take a Burridge workshop I hear there are openings at the Dena Wenmohs Ranch in August so contact Dena if you are interested.

After hours magic tricks by Bob and a student, Judith, who were our after dinner entertainment at Joe's Italian Villa. More information about this great 5 day workshop later.

Yup, your version is simply luscious! Bob was in Wisconsin the past couple weeks, and I was lucky enough to take his Loosen Up With Aquamedia class. He does manage to make it all look easy, doesn't he?
