Watercolor & Collage Fun!

I produced a some little watercolors the past week.  The little scene below was inspired by what I saw looking out the window of a restaurant as we were eating lunch.  All these little sparrows seemed to be so gleeful and enjoying their little bird life!

I added an element of fun by doing some collage work with rice paper over watercolor on heavy cold press illustration board.  The deckle edge watercolor below is on 140 lb Arches cold press and mounted over the collage.

In the small work below I used little bits of lovely fabric scraps given to me by my Mother who is a quilter.  The deckle edge painting is mounted over the fabric collage which is adhered to heavy illustration board.

one of my favourite birds, I would love to paint one but I know it would not be as good as this. I love it
