Abstract salt on watercolor painting. Has colors of mulberry purple, black grape, purple, puce, pink, mauve, chartreuse green, peacock green, slate blue, and white.

This is a mixed media / watercolor painting on watercolor paper. The paper measures approximately 9 inches by 12 inches and is acid free and lignin free. The painting covers the entire front side of the paper. The paint was applied very liberally. The painting is a combination of watercolor paint, gouache paint, and salt. When salt is applied to wet paint it creates a fractal effect. The salt was then scraped from the painting once it dried. Sometimes all the salt doesn’t come off, because it has bonded with the paint and scraping it off would tear the surface of the paper. Also, the salt that bonds chemically to the paint remains on the surface of the painting; it glistens a bit depending on the light.
