Torn Paper Collage on Canvas

This is "Bloomsday Pansies", 16x20 paper collage on wrapped canvas. It was begun on Saturday in Colorado City at Studio 20 under the direction of Susie Powell of Plains, Texas.
With this type collage method, you tear colored papers you need instead of using scissors.
Draw with black Sharpie directly onto canvas, then fit pieces of torn paper into the shapes.
Adhere with Liquitex gloss medium brushed on the support then on top of the paper. Varnish when dry.

I'd say that collage is very successful!
