A Moment in the Sun!!!! - Watercolour Painting Tip


Okay, I must admit this posting is all about me. This is Awesome News!!   I am having My Moment in the Sun!!  The International Artist Magazine has 8 full pages featuring my art in their April/May edition!!   I am just thrilled!  I still can hardly believe it. 

When I first started out drawing and painting I read their magazine faithfully trying to learn all the key things to improve my work.  I admired all the artists and hoped to be half as good as them some day. Now suddenly, I am one of those artists.  
It  started last spring when I entered their Florals Show.  No, I wish I could say I was one of the lucky ones that won a prize or got honorable mention.  I wasn't.  But I must have been very close as last fall I got an email from the International Artist Magazine saying they liked my work and wanted me to do an article for them.  I was thrilled.  It was a big job to put it all together but at the same time very exciting.  To see it now in print is Awesome!

Here I am, #108 April/May 2016 edition - Page 102 - Using Salt with Watercolour
Pretty neat, eh??!!

My demo was on using Salt with watercolour and then glazing over this with other colours.  My blog post  Dec 10, Adding Salt to the Mix gives a step by step pictorial tutorial on this.  ( By the way, it is a very effective way to add texture to your work.)
 The Demo page - A Friendly Face in the Forest - my demo picture and a picture of me on the left.

You may not have the magazine but you can certainly ready about the creation of this picture and using glazes after the salt has been added on my posts below:
