Too Late for Cheese






TOO LATE FOR CHEESE is my 3rd collage of newspaper doodles affixed to one of my favorite types of landscape backgrounds; vast and open.  In a way these are made of things that usually end up in a drawer or tossed out; doodles on newspapers, papers that I wiped off my brush on, etc.  I recombine them, then work over them some more to tie everything together.  The colors are mostly visual mixes of numerous pen and pencil strokes, there is actually very little mixed paint color in this, though I do use a little thin, transparent acrylic, and by the time I'm near the end I usually pop in some highlights in just select areas with paint.
