Lesson 4 was all about making texture.
Try not to be too judgemental, but the object was to create texture, not create a realistic looking wall. Yes, that is a wall below. After splashing paint all over our stone wall, we dropped salt into the wet paint. The salt makes amazing textures when it dries. I have some ideas for using this technique as it works well with diluted acrylic paint too!
Below we used crumpled up cling film on wet paint. Left it for 5 minutes before removing. I also dropped some salt into the still damp areas.
Below we tried to recreate the look of an old building. We weren’t trying to make a nice window. We used light and dark paint, a bit of wax, SALT and dropped in clean water.
Below we used wax before putting on a wash of paint for a seascape.
