|Theory in Practical Format|
I began this digital collage, "Theory in Practical Format," with old magazine cuttings and some art work that I had done. I also included an Art Deco floral piece that I got from Edouard Benedictus' Art Deco Designs plate book.
I scanned in the cuttings and used the largest piece for the background. I used Corel's PhotoPaint to assemble the collage. I used feathering on some of the objects, and some opacity settings, for fitting the dark color scheme.
I did the Warhol like cubist self-portrait partially in CorelDRAW, quite a long time ago when I worked at a finance company. The girl is from a portrait of my Daughter and the man is a freehand sketch painting both from some time ago.
I found it a refreshing way to use these pieces in a new and unusual setting. I added the matting in Corel's PSP Pro X3 and saved the large file. I then resized to display here.
