Sonora Church is a stained paper collage with watercolor and gouache.
The image is first drawn on a piece of heavy watercolor paper then small pieces of stained paper are torn and adhered to the support with acrylic matte medium. This creates a rough image, that is refined by painting with watercolor to darken places and with gouache to lighten areas, lines or edges.
Ponte Vecchio is acrylic and collage on canvas.
A contour drawing is made on gessoed canvas, using a fat permanent marker. A loose acrylic underpainting is brushed on the entire canvas covering the lines. A variety of rice paper, adhered with matte medium is applied and allowed to dry. Thin acrylic color glazes are brushed on allowing textures to show through.
Down the Big Sur Coast is an acrylic/collage on canvas.
