The Olive Green Challenge, part 5
Some of the chaos is gone from the piece now that I've worked more on the frame and have eliminated - or at least drastically reduced - the stark value contrast.
I first glued on collage elements, then painted the white parts with successive washes of Jenkins Green, Phthalo Green, and Sap Green until I was satisfied. As always with painting over collage elements and pushing them way back, it's somewhat sad to see them come close to disappearing, especially the ones I painted myself. But that's the way it goes with collage!
