"You Can Do It! ART"
Tilting the painting downward
shows how the cut-out pieces
have been layered over one
another.

Notice they are not glued flat,
which adds to the interest of the
landscape.
This beautiful painting of rolling
textured hills was painted by
Barbara Donivan during her
watercolor experimentations.
              STEPS TO CREATE YOUR LAYERED PAINTING:

1. Paint textures on your watercolor paper. Use different colors, variations, and
brushstrokes for each separate layer.

2. Cut out shapes that you want in your finished project.

3. Using watercolor paper or cardboard for your backing, move shapes around until
you find the design you like. Overlap the shapes.

4. Glue shapes to backing, leaving some sides open for special dimensional effect.
