Red Collages

Here are a couple more collages for the series of color studies I’m creating in Jane Davies’ online class Unlocking the Secrets of Color.

The first is a monochromatic collage using variety of reds plus white and a little black.  I also mixed a dark, almost black color by adding a dark green to one of my darker reds. I added several collaged images, but felt like it was too cluttery, so I painted it over with the colors from my monochromatic palette and added some curved fabric shapes.

For the second collage with analogous colors ranging from red to yellow, I used the same approach, laying down the colors and adding the images. I moved the images around until I got something that I liked, then pasted the images down with matte medium. I did a bit of tweaking with paint and additional images.
