Here is a wee update on my ongoing portfolio. I am trying to put together a cut paper portfolio, as I was advised to do about two years ago, when I attended the Advanced Illustration Workshop put on by the Highlights Foundation.
My process has been slow because of the book projects that came along. I'm happy for that! But now, I'm really trying to put this cut paper collection together. For those of you who don't have a portfolio. Let me tell you, it's hard. It is heart wrenching. I go back and forth. Taking things out and putting things in. Gosh, I'm tired.
Anyway, here is the latest addition. Idea came from a watercolor illustration I had done for my old portfolio. But, I thought the idea was good so, I made it again, in cut paper.
This shows a bit of the process.
Those grey tweezer type things on the right, are just that, they make it easy to pick up the pieces of paper and place them with glue.
