Tissue Paper, Acrylics and Sunflowers

Acrylic collage - 10x20

Sunflower Spring is a departure from my watercolor paintings. I used colored tissue and rice papers to collage on to mat board and then acrylics to negative paint around the flowers. I added more layers of collage and paint until I was satisfied with the piece. The beauty of this technique is that you can build up nice texture that is not possible with transparent watercolor.
