Dreaming Trees is a collage and acrylic painting offered by fine artist Shadia Derbyshire.
This collaged painting began as a soft under painting in acrylic, over which i layered various papers to create more refined shapes and patterns. I collaged the piece with hand torn, painted, stamped, stenciled or otherwise embellished papers. Finally, I added beautiful foiled accents to really make the artwork pop and catch the light. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas with a finish edge that reveals the art work process. it is coated to protect the papers and colors from the effects of UV light.
