5×8″ acrylic, collage, colored pencil

This piece is the first page of a watercolor sketchbook and I’m leaving it in the book for now. I originally stopped earlier with a bright solid background behind the collaged-on paint chips. Then I decided to write the title phrase repetitively on top of the background and took photos of it. But I decided it was not quite done, so I painted a transparent (zinc) white over the piece. Still not enough. I brushed over it a couple more times adding some opaque (titanium) white in with the zinc. Then I re-photographed it on the cement front porch. And now…it appears to be done. For now.
