Paint-over-Photo Collage A photo has been printed, then pastel paint was painted over the face. I like the simplicity of this collage, but it still looks really nice. If I were to do this form, I would do it as a series.
This piece feels really calming to me. The solitary blue melds well with the soft black and white of the rest of the piece. Even the woman's mouth echoes the tranquil rhythm of the clouds above. The symmetry of the piece adds to the overall peaceful vibe.
