Original Watercolor & Ink - 11x15

The Creative Challenge last week was to focus on the darks in your composition. In Old Shed I began by wetting the paper and applying colors randomly with no under drawing and applied salt in the foreground to create texture. When everything was dry I came in with ink and basically drew in all of the darks to create the old shed, fence and trees. I often talk about negative painting or going around a shape, here I did the same thing with ink.
