RECOMMENDED COLLAGE DVD
Sunday evening I watched Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson's DVD. She shares her collage technique, from sketch to acrylic underpainting, and final collage layering in a quick, thorough 30 minutes. I wished it was longer, but she told me everything she needed to tell me to do my own paper painting by the end of the 30 minute DVD. Plus, after the demo and instructions, I got to view a beautiful gallery showing of her work - some are "old friends" to me since I've been following her blog, but others were new - and all of them were vibrant, beautiful, and amazing work from a very talented lady.
I am definitely going to try this in the New Year and I recommend this DVD to you if you are interested in "paper paintings" and collage work to add to your repertoire in the future. It could take you in a very new and interesting direction for 2010!
Thanks, Elizabeth, for offering the DVD on your blog. (It's like a Christmas present for yourself if you buy one!)
For purchase, check out Elizabeth's blog at:
And check out a recent posting on Mary Beth Shaw's blog http://mbshaw.blogspot.com/2009/12/paper-art.html
to see some more amazing paper artists - she has a listing of them that will knock your socks off (lots of cut paper work that, frankly, I don't know how can be accomplished...it must involve math!)
