This is the first of the drawing elements for my next collage – a rock dove. The theme will be “royal birth” and this dove will be nesting in a rusted crown. The nest will be various collage elements including drawn leaves and feathers.
My main problem is how to make the rusted crown. I would like it to be dimensional – at least with the look of shaped metal, but not rounded to protrude from the canvas. I’m thinking of cutting out a crown-shaped piece of thin metal and embossing it, then coating it with a faux rust finish. We’ll see.
Meanwhile, there are plenty of drawn elements to work on.
Drawing is my favorite of all!
