More Postcards

So, I made a couple more postcards, experimenting with wet on wet watercolour and salt. I think I may have left the salt granules too long, because rather than just making a pretty effect on the paint, they have actually adhered to the card. I quite like the textural result though, so hey-ho.

to choose is also to begin
live in the moment

    Very cool, I like the added texture from the salt. – Sharon

  2. What sort of effect does salt have on the watercolor? I’ve seen an artist do that on youtube but the video only showed him sprinkling salt and not the final effect.
    Cool postcards!

    Neat! I like how the salt actually stuck to the paper!
