Art Journal Experimentation

This is an experimental art journal page I have been working on over the last few days, although I don’t know how happy I am with the end result. I used a sand gel medium for the background before painting over with a gouache wash with reds and blue. I’ve really enjoyed doing collage pieces in my work so continued this with the girl on the left, although I can see ways to improve it.

One thing I am finding with my recent pages is how I am allowing myself to be more experimental which is liberating. I can challenge myself with styles, materials, ideas and create something at the end that has pushed me creatively. Even with my mixed feelings on this page, I am glad I carried it on until I finished it.It has also given me more insight into how to use collage in other pieces.

Happy New Year Everyone!
