Diana's Companion


Mixed media on paper

This was done for the Different Strokes from Different Folks challenge. The subject was the actual statue of Diana and her Companion. It was a huge challenge for me! I tried painting, sketching, and decided at the last minute to do something I had been wanting to try all along...create an interpretation using torn paper. (much like "newsman" from a previous post). There's something very satisfying about making a mess with paper, glue and paint!

I checked out your blog and found your newsman. That sounds like a great way to study values and this project worked out very well for you in this latest DSFDF challenge. I like how you created the shadow under her left arm. Very nice!

You did a fantastic job with your papers and glue! I love arranging and rearranging papers and mixed media to create a composition too. Fun fun.

You go Glenda!!! This is sooooo cool. good for you for doing it. I've been colouring some papers and thinking about what I want to try that collage technique out on. You did a terrific job of this.

Thanks for all your comments! It is wonderful to see how creative so many of us are with Karin's subject.I find other artist's work so inspiring and helpful on my own journey.
