" Back on Track" collage technique

     Christchurch tram - tried to describe it abstractly and attempted a new technique of collage over the    top of a drawing. I wanted to capture some of the emotion I'm feeling about central city - trams are running but it still feels far from buzzing in town. New life is starting but it's a bit hazy as to what things will look like yet. All a bit messy still.
Technique wise - I put down a drawing and then layered collage over it with both opaque and translucent papers and then brought back the elements of the drawing at the end by inking over the drawing where I felt it needed to be strengthened.
