Using Salt For Texture
Pass the salt please
As the painting dried, the salt’s effect on the watercolor washes became visible.
But there was salt stuck all over my painting!
Using a clean dry hand I gentle started brushing away the salt from the sky area.
As I got to the hill sections heaviest with salt it felt like I was sanding my skin off! There was more available binder (gum arabic) in the more intense washes which held the salt tight.
Change of plans.
