Watercolor Collage: Orange Flower

I finally received the mulberry paper I ordered to make watercolor collages. This paper is much closer what I had in mind for collages. I did this little orange flower just to test what the paper did when I painted it with color, overlapped it with other colors, and how it dried:

9"x6"
The colors are very vibrant when they are wet, but when they dry, they pretty much go back to their original color-- which is good, I suppose. There are no surprises when the glue/water mixture dries. I will admit, however, that it's a little disappointing after seeing how vibrant the colors are when they are wet. Also, there isn't a lot of transparency when the glue/water mixture dries. When different colors are overlapped, not much of the bottom color comes through. All in all, I think mulberry paper will be great for collages.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

I'm back on a landscape kick. It's just so relaxing to come home from a stressful day at work and just paint where I'd like to be.
