Kizzy-i-Keinstein
with
"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!"

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate In the description box of your artwork has to be written which art media (ex.: watercolor, ink…) was used to create your painting. You don't need to name the brands. Writing "watercolor" in your tags is not enough.
