Playing Around With Paint

playing around with paint - 1

I had some fun over the weekend playing around with washes and salt and details.  Ultimately I think I may have gone too far.  I also was working on Arches cold-press, which I don't particularly care for. These are some of my early washes.  Trust me, it gets a little ugly - I'll post those photos tomorrow . . . I should've quit while I was ahead.  Ha!  But I learned a lot from this experience -- I think if I use the soft-press it will be better for me.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is looking pretty good Kara. Lately, I haven't liked the results I've been getting on the paper I normally use and thought of changing to Arches CP. I think you're getting interesting results experimenting.

  2. I like it a lot, Kara! I've been experimenting some myself lately because I tend to paint so tightly, and it is helping me. I'm getting some interesting colors, just as you have done here and it really is fun, as well as hopefully will improve the more I do it. I think you are more successful then I have been!

  3. Dear Kara - this is beautiful...don't think you went too far at all. Hope you have a great week-end. Thanks for sharing.
