Magnificat by hogret Magnificat by hogret
Collage on 300gsm watercolor paper

Paper, ink, acrylic glazes, rubber stamps, tissue paper, beeswax, oil pastels, wax crayons, stencils, washi paper, marker pen, acetate transparencies.

More of an experiment in textures than anything else.
Trying to recreate the feel of a medieval Russian icon.

Background step-by-step:



Her skirt is paper-weaving. See my tutorial at:

Gorgeous color and a classic collage!
My goodness, is this the work of a pro!

(btw I mentioned this id to someone who was looking
for some background/sets/scenes to jumpstart
a play....sorry I forget what site I was when I did that!)
