Figure in Watermedia with Collage

15x22 watermedia figure on hot press paper 140 lb; charcoal drawing was done after old phone book pages adhered and dried.  My demo above was in gouache.  Collaged paper cocktail napkins made up her sweater top.  Accents added using ink, watersoluble oil pastels, Caran D'Ache pastels.  Reference was my photo of a model named Karen and of course looks nothing like the real Karen. If you look closely you can see a tooth image from a yellow page dental ad above her left eye at her hairline.  Too much fun with this type art which may not be for you but it is for me.  The title of the painting is "Shasta Daisy".
