Here is one of the first images I did at TICA. I start by finding interesting collage materials, then glue them down to start my composition. I add underpainting in a complementary color. Since I work in acrylics and like to scrapethe surface to let the underpainting peek through, I complete small areas at a time. Otherwise the paint dries too quickly and I can't scrape out areas. I finish the painting by adding small spots of color to bring out areas and add detail.
