Art With Heart Monday & Watercolor Collage

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!

Fun Friday & Fall Trees

Watercolor - 11x15

Last week in my weekly class we focused on painting fall trees and using a sponge to create the texture of the leaves. When you are painting an autumn landscape with warm shades of yellow, gold and orange it is a good idea to balance it out with a few greens.

Watercolor & Words Wednesday - SOUTHERN MAGNOLIAS

Instant Digital Print - 8x10

I love the beauty of southern magnolias. When we lived in South Carolina we had a big, beautiful magnolia tree in the backyard that would be full of white, creamy flowers. They are said to represent the beauty and purity of life!

I used an image of one of my original watercolor butterfly paintings and added a quote to design a piece that is ready for instant downloading. You can print, trim and frame it for yourself or to give as a gift. My watercolor printables are a great way to make a creative connection with someone special in your life. I invite you to view all of my instant printables in my Etsy Shop!
