Different degrees of not real

I made a small 6" x 6" collage this summer using part of this scene. I decided it was such an unusual scene (a high mountain lake in Yellowstone) that I wanted to make a large collage with it. This 20" x 10" x 1.5" canvas has a painted sky with paper clouds, spliced together pieces of the scene with a "dry brush" filter run on the original in Photoshop, and art papers and tissue papers added to the trees and grass areas.


  1. Again, very cool. I need to get some photo shop lessons from you. When are you going to build your winter studio down here?


  2. I have been commissioned to do a painting. The painting is a mix of acrylic and collaged paper. Do you have any suggestions for how to attach the paper to canvas so the paper is flat and unwrinkled?
