Making of Courage

Making Courage

Courage is a paper painting by Elaine Joy Roach. It depicts a butterfly escaping the darkness into the light by Elaine Joy RoachProcess

The imagery is composed from several photos which I highlight on my pinterest (@treasured_paper).  I combined several images and altered them to match my concept.  I then chose papers for their colour and texture to evoke the image on my mind.  All elements were either cut or ripped by hand.  This paper painting was built up by layers of paper similar to my painting technique.

Here is a short slideshow/video:
