I’m really happy with how the sky turned out – although the salt wasn’t working as well as last time. I had to try it several times – I think the painting wasn’t wet enough. Some of the salt is stuck on there for good. It adds a bit of sparkle! Maybe I let it dry too long?

My Steps:
The underpainting.

Adding ink.

  1. Hi, very pretty. Try putting the salt down on the underpainting. With a staining blue, it may not have been able to lift the pigment. I love working with salt!! Perfect for snow scenes!

  2. Beautiful, you’ve captured the cold! Thanks for showing your process.

  3. CHARMING!!! And, I love your trees!
