Creative Monday Challenge # 19 - WORD OF THE LILY

WORD Of The LILY
Original Watercolor Collage - 8x10
$45 - Buy Here

The Creative Challenge last week was to incorporate lettering into your artwork. I began Word of the Lily as a watercolor and then added some collage. I used a stamp with small print and painted it with watercolor to stamp on top of light weight rice paper giving the illusion of lettering without actually being able to read it clearly. I also painted some of the rice paper in oranges and pinks and collaged them on for added color and texture.

This is a close up showing the rice paper with the lettering and some of it painted orange after I glued it on to the painting. When the collage was dry I could paint in more darks if needed.
