Impact by Amy Crook

Impact by Amy Crook

Paper and paint both matter a lot to how the salt affects the work, and this one actually went through several iterations of paint and salt. The more opaque of the Japanese sumi-e inks don’t seem to react as dramatically, but you can get some subtle texturing out of it. The more transparent inks run and pool, but this paper has a different absorbency than the one I used for Salt Cell, so the paint tends to dry much faster, giving it lest time to change the landscape of the colors.

Impact, 7″x5″ watercolor on watercolor paper, sold.

    Hee, thank you! It just goes to show, as it’s not my favorite of the salt pieces, but I decided to post it anyway. I can never predict what other people will love.
