For the Birds

The bird theme is still well and alive. Today’s collage developed slowly and went through big changes. The quilt-like block sections called for additional contrast.  By reusing the crow silhouettes from a previous collage, I was able to punch up the contrast and create some movement. Using my favorite complementary color harmony of blue and orange, layering texture and color and repeating some bird shapes finally resulted in a composition with which I was on board.  A few real feathers also made their way into the mix.
