As artists we are always developing. I started this site some years ago to monitor my progress at art classes. Some areas have improved faster than others and I expect this to continue to be an interesting journey. Constructive comments are always welcome. Steve.

Today's piece is a collage. Its called "Paper pseudo-woodland" 'cos I couldn't think of anything more descriptive for a newspaper and magazine-page collage. The aim was to do a "normal" woodland scene but I included some partially hidden images so that there's a red train in there, which could be crossing a wooded gorge, and a few travel adverts.
