The forest through the trees

One on the other wonderful techniques we did in the Workshop was an excercise in contrast and building.  Carol does wonderful tree collages and she shared this technique with us.  It sounds oh so easy but it isn't.  It takes some planning, manuvering and practice but I think that is the whole idea of Carol's workshop and her art.  Try things, don't be afraid to experiment and remember it is only paint and paper.
When you are doing the trees work from back to front and it is an excercise in contrast.  Be sure to bring the trunks all the way to the top if you don't use foliage.

Here are a few of the trees collages from the class:
