Mixed Media Art: Heron Hunting Wall Art

I made this Heron Hunting Wall Art collage using a cradle wood panel, acrylic paint, and lots and lots of tiny little pieces I cut from old magazines. I mainly use colored paper with text the same way a painter would use paint - as a palette of color to choose from.

Upcycle old magazines, books, and scrap wood to create a beautiful work like this Heron Hunting Wall Art

This collage measures 16" x 8" x 1". The heron is quite large, even though it doesn't appear so in the photos. First I painted the cradle wood panel and purposely blended it roughly to give a weathered effect. Then I began working on the heron. It took hours to create, and I had to consult a bird field guide to get the colors right. The paper was glued in place after finding just the right shades to create each section of the bird and background.
