collage. who would've guessed, huh?
'experimenting with collage' is an online workshop from MoMA. the first lesson introduced cubism and early collages by braque and picasso. our first assignment was meant to be a still life on canvas so, of course, i did a landscape on gessoed watercolor paper. i am such the rebel.
i was downtown at my usual wednesday battery park city haunt and the cityscape was perfectly cubist. i did a horizontal composition and a vertical. first charcoal which i havent used in so long that it was almost an entirely new experience. then paint - acrylic - then a few collage elements. the collage elements aren't pasted down yet. i keep shifting them and i'm not certain i don't prefer the second stages.
