watercolor and torn paper collage


These are just 9x12, and they were watercolor studies done in a workshop last year. I thought I would experiment and see how it looked w/ both, trying to incorporate my watercolors with the collage. The chef's cheeks are too dark. I may try to fix it, even though it has been varnished.
The Bike was fun to do. This one is different than the chef. On him, I did the back ground and his face. On the bike i left the background and just collaged the subject. I will be experimenting on more of some old watercolors that I don't want to frame.

Time for Coffee



Time for Coffee
12x12

The Torn Paper Collage workshop is this next Thursday and Friday. I have been experimenting, working on different cups, trying to come up with something I thought would be good for the class to do. Am looking forward to see what everybody ends up with.

Demo for West Texas Watercolor Society


Texas Boot

This was the demo I did for the West Texas Watercolor Society in Lubbock, TX last Sunday. I ask the one in charge if she was sure it was ok not to do watercolor, and she assured me they wanted me to come and do one of the torn paper pieces. Texas Tech is in Lubbock, and the colors are red and black so I went with theme. It does have the double T on the edge, it just doesn't show up. Plus I know we have to be careful with registered names, etc.
I just tore paper and made the T. I didn't copy their exact design.
