A few weeks ago at Imagineering, they had a Mary Blair show where they displayed many of her original pieces of art! We managed to go on the last week and got to see some of them in real life. I was shocked at the quality of them as well as how much process you could see by seeing the originals. On many of the pieces you could see her grid lines, and how she cut the paper or tape. I loved how you could see that the pieces were both very planned and also very spontaneous.
I was also surprised at how much paper cut she used in her pieces many of the scanned images you see in the books don't show the little folds or curls or cut marks. I got really inspired and I wanted to do some pieces integrating paper as well. Here is my first try, using Pricessia Pia again, I also used gold tape and some Washi tape for her dress and crown! I had SO much fun doing it, I can't wait to keep exploring these materials!
