Collages - Carol W. H.

I’ve done two sets of Collages - Red-Orange to Blue-Green and Red-Violet to Yellow Green.   I found it more difficult to paint the papers with dyes than paints because the dye sinks into the paper very quickly so it’s harder to scuff!   Also I somehow felt that I ended up with less different values with the dyes than with the paints.   Anyway here they are.   The photos are not great - I couldn’t get rid of the shadows.   The collages had curled up quite a bit and I put them under a pile of heavy books overnight which seemed to straighten them out and then they almost immediately curled up again!   I still find it quite hard to make myself concentrate on value - I get seduced by the colours.
