A Straw Wattle was created as part of my Erosion Series. I added paper on a painted and printed background that was outlined in white ink. The background was done on aquarelle 300 pound paper. The paper was hand torn in small pieces of bfk rives paper and glued down on the background. I then added many more layers of hand torn paper. The layered paper was water colored in shades of yellow, orange, purple and brown. I inked around the torn paper in black ink. The last step was very tiny ink dots of color added to the straw wattle.
