Fun adding Collage

Two paintings completed in watercolour but with added collage.
Using collage that related to my theme had me cutting up old  knitting patterns, Pianola rolls, sheet music, rice paper and then going for it. I even made up a mock wool bale stamp using my hometown of Goolwa for the brand, AAA for the grade of wool and my street number 131 for the bale number.
