Something a Little Different

Recently I decided to take a run at a few multimedia collage pieces, each with it's own theme.

I started with heavy weight watercolor paper, pasted down some elements including a photo of an antique Stoddard Dayton antique speedster being driven at speed in a spirited manner.  I used yellow, brown and orange acrylic paint to blend things together along with adding more elements including some strokes of oil pastel.

The second piece featuring a 1938 Dodge antique truck was made the same way except the photo (that I took myself at a car show) was transferred using acrylic gel medium rather than glued down, blue and yellow acrylic paint was used as well as marks made with acrylic paint pens.

I used the photo transfer technique on this one as well but with a vintage photograph featuring two visible gas pumps dispensing Red Crown gasoline, I used both oil pastel marks and acrylic paint pens on it.
