Aspen Tree Watercolor Collage and Carriage in Breckenridge

Watercolor Collage
One of the workshops I taught while in Breckenridge, CO was Watercolor Collage where we combined paint and textured tissue and rice papers. I began by masking out the aspen trees and then painting a wet on wet background and rock area. I colored the tissue and rice papers with similar watercolors and then collaged them in the foreground for added texture. I removed the masking and painted details on the trees to finish it all up.
I could not resist taking a picture of the beautiful horse drawn carriage surrounded by snow and holiday lights on Main Street Breckenridge.


  1. Beautiful first painting for the challenge!

  2. You are a wonderful watercolorist, Martha. So glad we are in this challenge together.

  3. I love your colors! Beautiful piece for the first painting in the challenge (: I'm looking forward to seeing what we all produce over the next 30 days.
