A Watermedia Collage Series on Trees

One of my students in Exploring Watercolor has been working on an interesting series. Jane let snow fall on wet watercolor to make textured backgrounds. She cut the colored papers into squares and attached them to black backgrounds. Jane painted the trees with watercolors. [Note: The patterns are precisely straight, but some curvature appears in the photos.]

I love what she's doing with these. Today she used this treatment on a redbud tree and it is spectacular! My class is constantly surprising me.
