Since I didn't have a subject matter in mind, I decided I would just play with colour. I quite often create abstract backgrounds this way, and later define the painting with more detail. I added a damp piece of cheesecloth, and spritzed the watercolour paper.
First, I dribbled, dabbed, and daubed with Antwerp Blue ( I LOVE this colour!) letting drips splash where they might, and water bead and run as it liked. My board was on a slight incline to help with this movement. I used a very wet brush loaded with paint and made fast, bold strokes
Next, I added Green Gold to the blue, allowing the colours to touch and mix, rolling the brush along and on the cheesecloth, smoothing edges with a damp brush and having fun!
This close-up shows why I was disappointed.
This close-up shows the sea salt and the effect it can have pulling up the colour to create little pale 'ice' bursts.
Now, what shall I do with the 'painting'? I'm not sure. I could cut it up for gift tags or cards. I could go back in and paint some more. I could play with wax and more paint or watercolour crayons. What would you do? Hmmmm......I'll have to think on it.
At least I do have a fabulous bit of coloured cheesecloth to use in another project.
