Following on from my last post, this is a similiar view but I decided not to use collage.  Instead I used my ‘usual’ mixed media kit – a combination of oil pastel, watercolour, acrylic paints and acrylic inks. As before, though, I experimented with using a very limited palette of colours, exploiting the warm/cool contrast.  Interestingly the eye still reads the image (or maybe just my eyes do!) because the tones work.  A fun experiment anyway
