Daily painting: Cut versus torn borders


Dear reader,


Today I made another collage – all of the same scraps of the old blue-green painting. I now have made three postcards of them (and could make many more). What I find interesting is the difference between the ‘torn borders’ (can you say that?) and the cut borders. I think they make a beautiful contrast.

    Hi Dotty, thanks!
    Indeed there is a Quin Gold background (very loosely applied with drybrush)

    Simone, your postcards are fabulous! With the one you’ve posted today, is there a painted background (quin gold) or is the entire piece made of collage? Striking contrasts between the cut and torn edges.
