and here is a painting of his titled "Bowl of Fruit, Violin, and Bottle" 1914 from the Tate Modern that I took in London. Although it is painting, Picasso painted it to look like a collage. He made several collages from bits of paper and then added guitar and violin details.
- scraps of paper, newspaper, junk mail
- wc or heavy paper
- tempera paint
- charcoal, colored pencil, sharpies/markers
- reference photos of guitars/violins
Take your scraps of paper. Tear and/or cut into pieces and start gluing onto your wc or heavy paper. You can go over the edges of your paper as we will trim them later. Let dry.
Using a marker or pencil add in some guitar details. Maybe just pieces of the shape and the dominant parts of the instrument. Or you might want to do a full sketch.
Continue until you are pleased with the composition. You don't have to fill every section and it is more visually appealing if you leave some areas untouched to show the collage papers.
