Since I started sketching this week, I thought I would go a step further and do some water colour painting too. I used my rich and creamy Kuretake paints which are unlike any other water colour paint I have known with such vibrant colours. For my inspiration I chose photos of flowers from a gardening magazine. As I wanted a quick result I really rushed what I was doing and slapped on the background paint without much thought and care. Annoyed and disappointed with myself I thought about how I could make my rushed work look acceptable. I decided on covering the whole painting with sea salt flakes to absorb the water and create an interesting effect. I used a spray bottle to add more water to see what would happen. At this stage I had written off the painting anyway.
I hope everyone is having/had a great weekend!
