Abstract Watercolor by chibianne Abstract Watercolor by chibianne
Abstract watercolor using various textures.. an assignment for a class, I had fun with this, and havent put anything else up lately, so yeah, why not? I played with this in photoshop a bit and added the lense flares, I guess I'm a tool like that.

*edit*

2-7-08 I kept getting all these comments that the lens flair looks baaad. I am starting to see that. Even though this has been up for over a year I re-uploaded without the lens flair, it's apparently the only thing anyone looks at of mine on DA, and I don't want it to suck. Heh heh.

I love the palette and enjoy all of the different textures. I'd enjoy seeing you do more like this, with a planned composition. Something that you vaguely suggest to your viewer, but that you know is there.

I understand why people would have complained about any lens flare or any other digital enhancements. Since this is a traditional fine art piece, adding anything to it other than what you create with your hands, really moots the point.

Nice job ♥

Really cool - love the color! Check out Sadie Patterson Art's watercolors. They're more figurative but let me know what you think.

I can't tell you how in love with this piece I am. I've had it as my wallpaper on my MacBook for months now (hope you don't mind). I'm a novice at water color and I really want to make something like this... How on earth do you manage to come out with these effects and layers (and those green worm things don't blend with the rest)?! I saw that you mentioned plastic wrap and foil... I think I may see water drops also in the upper right. I'd love it if you shared your secrets! :)

how do you make those white dots and splotches?
Reply
:iconchibianne:
chibianne Featured By Owner May 5, 2008
Depending on which splotches and dots you mean... some was wet paint sprinkled with salt, or with rubbing alcohol dropped onto it. Other white areas were from drawing on the dry paper with a wax candle to created an area resistant to paint but with texture, and then painted over with wet paint. Thanks for looking!
