This is a mixed media project incorporating collage, photo-transfer, and oil paint. Combining these three techniques can offer you a great breath of visual information. This variety, however, can also make it difficult to keep the image from feeling fragmented.
In part one I will build up an interesting surface for my self portrait with collage. Part two will cover making a self portrait drawing, manipulating it in Photoshop and transferring a printout of the drawing onto the collage from part 1. In part three I will discuss how to use oil paint to tie the picture together.
