Watercolor Technique by Elaine Pu

Artists using watercolors can utilize many different techniques to produce different effect. These techniques can be identified within three groups: wet, dry, or additive.  When using these techniques only a few would move the painting from watercolor to a mixed media designation. Using crayon, pastels, or ink would classify the painting as mixed media, but using plastic, string, lace, sponge, splattering, blowing, or salt allows it to remain a pure watercolor.  It is one of the favorites among my students.  I especially love the innovative ways Elaine used each one.
