We have two weeks to create some pieces from the backgrounds we made at our Watercolor class last week-end. I started this tiny piece by wetting the paper (140 lb cold press watercolor), setting three small shells on top, adding some sand-colored watercolor, and sprinkling it with table salt, to try to get a sandy effect. When it was dry, I spritzed the blue on with a toothbrush. There were white blobs where the shells had been, so I added to shell texture with colored pencils, then added the text around the edges. I had to really squeeze to get it all to fit!
