Paper and Paint

This week's assignment was the most terrifying and yet so exciting to create. I haven't done that many collages in my life, you could count them on one hand. When the assignment came out I was slightly freaking out as my normal art is clean, controlled and colourful. There were colour restrictions in the brief, but I found with a little scavenging of my paper collection and some playing with paints I was able to overcome the limitations.
My first attempt was a bit too controlled, I hadn't relaxed yet. By the second attempt I was so in the zone I didn't want to stop, thoroughly enjoyed this exercise.
The photograph is ok, but it really doesn't show up the flourescent pink that I used.....
One more week and then the course is over, boo hoo!
