Spanish Valley

This watercolour was started as a demonstration in Spain. After visiting the Alhambra, I was blown away with the tiles and ceramics and mosaics. I wanted to have the students experiment with collage and recreate the affect of moasics in their watercolours. We saved brown egg shells and Quail egg shells as well as flax seeds and oat meal flakes for the tile pieces. Upon my return home I finished this in the studio.
