Watercolor collage workshop

I had a really fun day, going outside the box, ...for me! I took a workshop with a local & talented artist named Bill Earnshaw. He works in watercolor collage. It's very different! This is how it is done. You start with a watercolor painting loosely painted. Once it is dried you start layering colored and textured papers, glued one small piece at a time, where ever you want within the painting. Below are two paintings I completed in his class. I loved how they came out!
