Garden Girl Collage in Watercolor & Graphite

Posted on

I made “Garden Girl” from flowers cut/torn from note cards, stationery and other pretty pages. On the face, neck and shoulders I started with a light drawing in graphite, created from imagination. Then I used watercolors to communicate form and depth around the face and features, holding the paper up and allowing the paint to drip in chosen areas.

Once the watercolors dried, I went back in with the graphite to accentuate the eyes nose and mouth. Later today I plan to paint the background a light shade of blue and call her finished.

She looks kind of sad and vulnerable, but I see a little hope in her eyes as well. She will be available soon. Message me if interested.
