ArtByte Collage Tutorial is Ready, Etsy Collage, NancyStandleeArt, Koi 13068 Torn Paper Collage Paper Painting, Day 13, 30 Paintings in 30 Days September 2013 Leslie Saeta Challenge, by Texas Contemporary Collage Artist Nancy Standlee

Koi 13068
12x12 torn paper collage on gallery wrapped canvas

I started with a background of white business pages on a gallery wrapped canvas, collaged the koi and then added some glazes and splatters with paint and alcohol. The text "and down to the water they went" and some vintage stamps were also glued on.

To see work by other artists who are following along with the 30/30 go to the Leslie Saeta blog. I have joined hundreds of other artists for this September painting challenge and we are trying to paint and post a painting each day. It doesn’t have to be a finished piece but some piece of art each day. On some of the larger commission pieces I have posted portions over a 3 day period. On the smaller pieces I can do one a day. 
I have written an ArtByte about the process of torn paper collage for the Daily Paintworks site and it is ready for viewing HERE. It has 10 pages 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 at $10.00 and it's loaded with information.  And/or I can answer any questions you might have. Send me an email or message me on Facebook. You can also leave a review and that would be appreciated. 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 add more each day.

Original fine art and affordable prints can be found at:
