"POTPOURRI," 11016 mixed media collage © Carol Nelson Fine Art



This painting is a collection of found objects, art papers, leather, aluminum, brads, nails, and acrylic paints.  These collages are a lot of fun to make and are one of the most popular things I teach artists about in my workshops.

I always encourage artists to use a limited palette because with so many different texture materials, having all the colors closely coordinated has a unifying effect on the final piece.
