Using watercolors in collages
Updated: Nov 11
This is a good example of a well-executed mixed media Watercolor Collage. Done in a semi-abstract manner, it exemplifies the qualities that make watercolor a perfect medium for a strong collage. Design, Color and Value are the three tools used to make this a success.
To see this work in person would better allow the viewer to understand the differences in a Painting and this Collage. The main difference is Layering. This creates a three-dimensional effect that a normal Watercolor does not possess.
Acrylics make a wonderful medium for making collages. They are available in every form and finish imaginable! Cheap Joes carries a broad selection. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.
