Sometimes, I start painting the face first. This time I started with the background. I stepped away from the desk and when I came back, my eye translated the green leaf as a bird. That is what I love about collage.
Then I started painting the face and I got excited about purple lips. And so it goes. Purplish face. That reminded me of my Faces In Technicolor class (still available).
At some point, I saw the little green tip of a leaf under the purple bird as a bird head so I painted it and realized it was the whole bird. That is what I love about collage.
I think I said that.
