I haven't named it yet either, which is very unusual for me.Normally I have my paintings named way before the end. I think I need to add some blue writing on the right side in the background, but can't figure out exactly what I want yet.
This is the technique I learned from Kay Smith. You glue phone book pages down, leave them for 10 minutes and then pull off what you can. I am not crazy about the preparation of the paper, but the painting part is fun! I love gouache. You draw your subject with vine charcoal, then use the gouache to paint, then collage parts of the painting, leaving some of the charcoal. I like to use my torn paper technique on it. His scarf, apron and buttons, are done that way. The menu was a piece of scrapbook paper that I had, and I added stuff to that.
