Art With Heart Monday & Watercolor Collage

SUNFLOWER BARN
Watercolor Collage - 11x15

There are so many creative options when painting with watercolor and combining it with collage is one of them. I first hand painted some white tissue paper with shades of yellow, gold and orange and then collected some store bought green tissue that had holly patterns printed on. I began by loosely adding color on wet paper to give myself a map for the collage, then used matte medium to apply the tissue to the sunflowers and leaves. When that was dry, I used watercolor to paint in details and shadows for more definition.


Obviously my original painting is not this large but it is fun to digitally play around and combine images on the computer. Just another way to be creative!
