I've always loved the color of cyanotype prints. As a child I loved creating these sun-exposed prints and now many years later I have revisited the technique. The deep cyan was the inspiration for this color palette.
The base of this nautical-inspired piece was constructed entirely of paper collage from vintage sailing maps, charts, watercolor paper, envelops, and paper ephemera. I then layered acrylic paint over the bars to create a painting. The paper collage is still visible through the paint to create interest.
“Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round and pluck blackberries.”
― Elizabeth Barrett Browning
