Create a landscape with a difference. Patchwork Fields
To create a patchwork fields collage choose a landscape photograph , preferably one that you have taken yourself. Cut the photo into three equal parts and rearrange the order of them. Draw out your new landscape onto good quality watercolour paper.
Your chosen colour scheme
Choose a colour scheme, may be based on your photograph or from another picture that you like or from your own imagination. Block out areas of your landscape and and paint patches of colour. Wet the sky and paint it adding clouds .When the sky is dry colour the distant hills in a darker colour. Cut out a collection of fabrics and papers of different textures and arrange them on your painting sticking with a glue stick. Think about where the viewer will look and remember to include a focal point. This is an way into abstract landscapes which may look easy but are in fact very difficult to achieve.
