People at a Table and Woman Dressing Her Hair. Since my current series is inspired partly by Matisse's collages, I've been meaning to try some myself. Of all the media I've worked in, cutting up bits of colored paper brings one closest to one's inner kindergartener, X-Acto knife notwithstanding.
These were laid down right on the scanner, and maybe this is a little too much fidelity for presentation purposes. You can even see the watermark in the paper and the warps from the glue, an acid-free PVA that costs more per ounce than Jagermeister. I'm going with them anyway. Truth in advertising, and all that.
