As promised, I have some more photos of my abstract watercolor paintings on canvas!
First up, the tropical palm leaf...... I like this one so much I hung it in my master bedroom. I painted the leaves on the sides of the canvas to continue the design. That way I didn't have to frame it :)
This piece is full of my favorite colors: blues and greens. I once read that the human eye can distinguish more shades of green than of any other color. Once you start mixing greens with your paints, you see how that is true. There are so many possibilities in greens and they play so well off of one another.
And my salt and glue experiment turned out lovely. I could drool over the textures all day!
Now, onto the watercolor cactus paintings!
These were the most fun to paint, because I love cactus and I love the process of painting watercolors on canvas. At the time I painted these, I had no idea that they made canvas specifically for watercolor paints! I just gessoed my own canvas and went to town with runny, messy paints. One day I will try the watercolor canvases though. They sound amazing!
