Wednesday, 18 June 2008 by Irene Hoofs

...inspired by one of Arounna's son (Lliam) favorite authors Eric Carle

...this project is about creating textures from the paint giving the collage a
lot of interesting tones and surfaces

What you will need:
*tempera or acrylic paint (I used tones of black - colour would also work)
*flat large brushes
*large sheets of poster paper (poster paper have a bit of sheen to it -
*similar to finger paint paper)
*scissors, glue stick
*1 sheet of white bristol board

step one:
..take tempera paint and water it down and paint on the poster paper in dry
manner - creating brush strokes and texture. (allow to thoroughly dry)
step two:
..the first part of the still life I created a table giving it slight angles
to give a perspective feel.  The cut out shapes are glued down
..I than began to cut out various shapes like a bowl and bottle and plate
with some food.
..try to look at the different textures and tones to give contrast to your
collage.

..It would be fun to also set-up your own still life and use as an
inspiration or you can build the still life from your imagination.
