Describe this Piece: I began this painting with watercolor on wet paper, then I collaged on hand painted tissue and rice papers. I then returned to the watercolor and used negative painting to define some of the tulips and leaves, added more collage, painted some more, more papers and so forth until I felt that the painting was finished. I have found that combining watercolor and collage can get your creative juices flowing and give a fresh new look to your paintings.
