Art Class – Scraping and Salt

Heidi was showing us how to create texture effects using salt and scraping pigment with the wrong end of a brush or stick.  I didn’t have anything suitable to hand so here we have some cardinals and a lighthouse.  Both are ‘challenge’ pictures – the cardinals are for the facebook page ‘Paint Colorful Birds for Fun’  and the lighthouse is for the monthly wetcanvas.com challenge.

This came out rather blander than I expected although I was pretty happy with the rocks.
