Climbing Ivy – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor
This is the finished painting that I started a week ago and finished Saturday morning. The photo I used for a reference is compliments of Dominic at WetCanvas. Here are the steps I took…
First, I wet a piece of watercolor paper and dropped some color onto it. Then, I added rock salt and rice.
After it dried, it looked like this…
Then, I negative painted the bricks and mortar into it. Just for fun, I then splattered a little watercolor over it.
Here is what it looks like without the tape, before I cropped it for the blog.
I had a great time!!!
