24"x24" Mixed media on museum quality paper adhered to canvas.
This collage was conceived after a one week stay in New Orleans, while on a two and a half month RV road trip through the Continental US and Canada. During that week, I went out to the French Quarter and downtown every day to try to capture the essence of the city. The music, the architecture, the food and the people.
The original image was painted from several reference pictures that I captured, using Corel Painter on a MacBook Pro laptop and a Wacom graphics tablet. The image is then printed onto museum quality paper, adhered to canvas and finally worked on over with acrylic paints and gels to give it form and texture and create a unique piece.
