Corn and Watercolor

This morning was another fun time exploring watercolors with Jodi Steele at the Daniel Smith mothership.

I played around with some new colors. Then I experimented with the Black Lava Salt I got at the airport in Iceland. It does leave black specks after it dries on the paint.  It could have it’s uses in providing texture for painting of soil, sand, rocks but not for the usual uses of salt in watercolor.

Then I settled down to sketch an ear of colorful corn. Jodi had brought several she placed on all the tables.  This may become a Thanksgiving card for some people….
