Mixed-Media Painting

Created by Peggy Brown
Starting with a painted paper substrate, the artist added painted archival paper and transfers from her personal photos as she designed this watercolor collage. All components were painted with transparent watercolor paint, then re-painted and enhanced with graphite drawing for more depth and texture. Gold and silver leaf is then added. Her work is known for its subtle color and strong attention to good design. Using reversible tape, she mounts each painting upon another piece of watercolor paper or museum board allowing the deckle or torn edges of the painting to be exposed as part of the presentation. If that is not desirable, edges can easily be covered by a mat, in a more traditional manner, during the framing process. Like all works on paper it requires framing under glass.
