Integrated Collage – Step 2

Drawing and the beginnings of watercolor are added

The second step is a contour drawing of the subject and the the addition of watercolor. It’s necessary to work as dryly as possible since the watercolor can “creep” beneath the collaged papers and go just where you don’t want it! The image is both within the collaged areas and into the white. You can see that on the building on the left at the roof line and where the posts extend into the darker area. The white paint on the building on the right and in the left foreground is permanent white gouache which is much preferable to white watercolor.

I’ll post step three tomorrow!
