Hand Painted and Torn Paper Portrait Collage Painting
20x16 on gallery wrapped canvas
This piece was fun to do as I had a beautiful photo to work from and I added some personalized touches with computer text such as her nickname, Grumpy, her birthday, her horse's name and her favorite song.
This is the wonderful photo I had to work from:
I have written an ArtByte about the process of torn paper collage for the Daily Paintworks site and it is being edited at the moment and will be available soon with more than 50 images. An ArtByte is a small online tutorial that may be free or it's very affordable. Mine will be very affordable. Here is the web address and browse and download some of the free ones by Carol Marine or another favorite artist such as Julie Ford Oliver that will explain some of the tools she uses in an oil painting technique. There are several very good free ArtBytes that are filled with information. When you get to the Daily Paintworks web page, look under tutorials. Here is my online gallery at Daily Paintworks.
I've decided to open a shop at Etsy as I will be adding some small watercolors soon. The shop has limited paintings right now but I will load more as I have time. http://www.etsy.com/shop/NancyPaintings
