Poppy 2 by Debbie Bezuidenhout

I entered two of my watercolor paintings and and forgot to mention work in the negative with my subjects. I use salt and ink to start. Dry the paper thoroughly and brush off the salt. I then move the paper around to get a subject that suite me and start the painting negative. I love to paint flowers and still lifes. The best quality paints and paper is neccessary for the best results.

What's the point?
by: Lynne

When someone leaves a comment and asks a question, why doesn't the artist respond. This is not the first time this has happened. What's the point of sending a painting to Watercolor TIPS unless you are willing to give TIPS?

I assume you are texturing the paper with the salt and some colot before you begin. It is a lovely look. You could also try adding a wrinkled tissue to the paper with a thin amount of white glue or acrylic medium. As long as it is thin enough, you can still paint over it with watercolor.

Explain further please

Are you simply painting various wet in wet colors and sprinkling salt without any drawing first? Do you then draw your subject over this background and paint in the negative? I love the result and would like to learn to do it.
