watercolor resist ... turned collage

"Crimson Wind",  30" x 23",  before and after adding leaves (I am going to add even more leaves)

If I had been more focused when I put down my initial paint washes, I could have allowed for falling leaves (in lighter colors) without needing to turn this into a collage. Live and Learn.

Oh, and this was my other demo


  1. I like the leaves but the "other demo" grabs my attention. Beautiful.

  2. I am still struggling with the collage piece. In the morning I may have to add even more leaves - I feel like I need to mess it up or something. The "other demo" was definitely easier for me, maybe it feels less forced. Thanks for your feedback, Hallie.
