Guest Artist - Polly Birchall (UK) Less Salt Happy Heart

Another painter from England joins our Brushworks blog heart series today with this fun and lively watercolor. It is 9" x 8" on Langton Paper, and she used mainly Cad Red, Perm Rose and Winsor Violet, with both table salt and sea salt.  Title of the valentine is printed upper right and Polly says salt is not good for us but in watercolor it is used to make textural effects as she's shown here.  Thank you, Polly! Happy Valentine's!

Wow, it looks sparkly and happy here on the blog. I hope you will do more. Such lighthearted fun (no pun intended) with this design.
