Here is something. Just playing with the idea of waves (afterall, I have all that paper painted in blues!!), using those papers on a piece of paper I'd previously painted in muted colors and whites.
And here is another one, more seriously begun.
This one begins with acrylic and collage papers on Arches hotpress 140# paper. Unlike the previous acrylic and collage on canvas, this one began with my thinking I wanted to do a seascape instead of a landscape.
The next step is to push back all that collage stuff on the horizon line...
Reinforcing the idea of the seascape...
Now need to add some line work with...hmmm...maybe watercolor crayons or oil pastels? Anyway...needs more oomph at the horizon and a darker sea?
These things do make one think more about composition, value, line, color, etc...but I'm not sure I'm successful yet - more practice to come.
