Salted Painting

Salted Painting


Painting a picture always involved the use of basic art materials according to me. It was in the first year of college that i realized anything works in art. For instance who knew that salt could be used to paint. Yup ! (another techniques i learnt from Ranjit sir). Painting this picture involved sprinkling a generous amount of salt over the watercolours. Once the salt absorbs water in its area and dries, it can be shaken off. It left the painting with a wonderful snowy texture that seemed very natural. Its amazing what can be done with such a simple technique.
