watercolor rice paper collage of geese in snow

Crystal Dawn by Nita Leland
Watercolor Collage

This collage is more about light and texture than it is about geese. I love the way the sun reflects off the ice and snow of a marsh and sets a scene ablaze. I laminated illustration board with a sheet of textured rice paper, using matte medium as the adhesive. Then I laid watercolor washes on the textured surface, and they crawled into the wrinkles and made interesting tree shapes. It's fun to work with these "happenings." This piece appears in Creative Collage Techniques on p. 72.
