gone to waste by GreenSprite gone to waste by GreenSprite
I'm not having any luck with watercolours lately. I'm just glad I had the intuition to scan this before I ruined it.

Coloured inks, watercolour, salt, masking fluid, slight saturation adjustment in Photoshop.

No luck?! Curse your humility! :shakefist:

I love this :heart: - love the autumnal colours, the salt and masking-fluid effects. Brilliant way to capture trees without the horror of painting every single effing leaf! :D

Remember that I did ruin the original after all (I should scan it for you to see :P)

And yes, any shortcuts that keep me from drawing millions of detailed tiny things are welcome! :D

I am madly in love, how you work with watercolor. * __ * You do invent, or somewhere you take these techniques?

Oh, they're well-known techniques (such as using salt). I guess what makes my watercolors different is the fact that I use many layers.
Thank you *_*
