Collages by Lesley A. Powell

I do almost weekly drawings using charcoal, watercolor, gouache and watercolor pencils of models doing  one minute, five minute, ten minute and twenty minute poses. I especially love the one minute poses because they have such movement to them.  Between these and other watercolor paintings, I create a collage.

I love how the collage takes my brain to another place of creativity. Juxtaposition of different images creates a different form. Then with modge pudge and painting I take the collage to another place.
