Adding Collage to Crazy Flowers

….lesson 4 and 5 of Carla Sonheim’s ‘Flower Crazy 2’ class

In the next two lessons we were encouraged to make some abstract flower shapes on Swedish tissue paper using water colour and chalk markers. I didn’t have Swedish tissue so I used a tissue like Japanese paper that I had on hand. Here are the flowers I created, first with the chalk markers and then the watercolour paints.

Then using some of the techniques learned so far I created a new abstract floral painting and layered the collage pieces on top using a mat gel medium. Once the medium was dry I added some shading using pencil and highlighted area with white ink.
