This painting is a watercolor on a tissue paper collage over an old, discarded painting, with a touch of Zentangle thrown in.
I textured the tissue paper with Gesso before I collaged it to the old painting.  This was a class project for my watercolor class and I encouraged them to find their own floral inspiration and they all did a wonderful job.  Some even changed the subject to sea turtles, angels and fish.

Your students are learning so many great techniques to add to their watercolors! I like this and can see where it would look good with underwater scenes, too.

Hi Rhonda,
Yes - this process would go well with underwater scenes also - in fact, I have used it with paintings of koi fish. I have been trying to expose my students to various techniques and mixed media.
