Salt and Bleach

Experiments into the use of bleach and salt with water colour:

exh - 4 (3)

In an attempt to discover the results of mixed medias I took to marking out my design in pencil, then applying a scarlet water colour I added plenty of water then salt and bleach.   This has resulted in a fluid finish, once again showing light and dark with definition between boxes despite using only one colour.  I continue to experiment.

Work of David Smith 1964, whose spray enamel on canvas adopts a playful approach whilst capturing a moment.
