Episode 7 - 'Creating Textures'
Our episode shows you how to create texture using non-specialist supplies such as sponges, rock salt and clingfilm.
Following on from last weeks episode, showing you Masking Techniques, our In-House artist Ellie Jakeman shows you how to create textures for your watercolour artwork. Alongside our ARTdiscount supplies, we have used items from our online collections but you may have similar items at home such as both natural and synthetic sponges, rock salt and clingfilm to create shapes such as brick,bark,sand,woodgrain.
Sponges can feel more organic than a brush and create endless possibilities of shape and texture by building up colour and tone. Rock salt will draw up the pigment when added to a wash, lifting colour from the paper to create dappled effect, great to create brick surface and natural stone.
Clingfilm is a great material, together with varying colours or tones, to create organic backgrounds or an abstract piece.
