Driftwood Gathering

Since we are on the subject of salt, I will continue to give a few more salt tips.

There are different sizes of salt.

There is table salt, kosher or coarse salt, and sea or rock salt.

All of which can be used with watercolor.

Depending on the size of the salt, you can create many different effects.

For instance, in the above painting, Driftwood Gathering, I used salt for the beach rocks and sand.

In the distance, I used table salt.

For the middle ground, I used kosher salt.

And for the foreground, I used the big chunks of sea salt.

I did this create the effect of distance.
