It is really FUN to pin up works-in-progress and big fat lines to use as collage paper right on the studio wall. Check this out:
|A rearrangement of my Wall from the other day, which you can see in the previous post.|
|Another view of the above. I included some Big Fat Art in process, to which I've added some collage papers from my Big Fat Lines.|
|Four works in process, each 19"x24", which include some of the Big Fat Lines as collage elements.|

Big Fat Lines
This has been SO FUN! I'm making big fat lines on big fat paper. 18x24" cheap drawing paper, as well as full sheets of Chinese newspaper sent by a friend. On the newspaper, I am first painting it with slightly watered down white and off-white acrylic using a cheap hardware store bristle brush. LOVE the texture that makes! For the lines I am mostly using a mop brush and high-flow paint.
Here are a couple of collage-paintings I've made from big fat line work. These are both on 19"x24" bristol. The Blick Bristol is super smooth and durable, perfect for this kind of thing.
|This is the view from my office/yoga space, in the loft of my studio.|
|See that spiral piece lower center? That is on deli paper, painted first with the white.|
|This one includes some cut-up Big Fat Art|
|The pink and green on the lower left are house paint scribbles.|
