I have been testing the watercolor pigment to salt ratios as background possibilites for brush print patterns. A lite wash of color is no longer in the running, doesn't even make it onto the blog for consideration. A medium wash (top picture) or a dark wash (bottom picture) are still up for consideration. I like the copper patina color that comes thru when I use the Hooker Green & Payne's Grey paint combo. And lean towards the medium wash because of the nuance it provides. But the dark was provides such a solid ground to work from & the white gouache then has much more paint to react with. So the testing will continue... Testing testing... Happy Wednesday Y'all!
