Artist's Toolbox: Watercolor equipment II
✿   Watercolor Equipment II - Additional Tools In the first week of Artist's Toolbox, we discussed basic Watercolor Equipment such as paper, brushes and paints. Second week's article presents additional tools, equipment that some artists use to enhance their watercolor creations or just for the fun of it, however none of them is crucial to create a watercolor painting. I divided these tools into two categories - those used to Create Highlights and those used to Create Textures. Bottom part of this article belongs to our watercolorists and their Personal Experience regarding additional tools. 1. Creating Highlights ✐ Masking

"The Inner World"

The Inner World by Kizzy-i-Keinstein



Our guest judge LualaDy 's reason for choosing this artwork:
"This is the one artist that really understood what salt texture is and how to use it to achieve this magical atmosphere. I especially love how there is enough information for us to understand the scene and at the same time very little additional painting aside the salty areas. I think it tells a great story, good job!"

Oh my! I didn't suppose I will win something! Just logged in a few minutes ago (I'm rarely online last time because coordinating charity Christmas event in real world what takes really a lot of time...) and saw so many so kind notifications. What the fantastic end of this hard week :heart:! Thank you so so much everyone :hug:!

And of course congratulation to the other winners!
