Water and Salt

Using watercolor is a lot of practice, some chemisty and a little bit of magic. We strive to maintain a translucent look and utilize the white paper showing through as the lightest value. In this piece I achieved some special effects by sprinkling salt into the wet pigment.

Reminds me of a saltwater waterfall somewhere on the Pacific coast. Great effect!
