Absolutely, stunningly beautiful! :hug: Another great piece of artwork which I greatly admire and love! :love:
I was just wondering, would you mind telling me how you get the splotches in your paintings? Is is salt or rubbing alcohol or something that you use? Like on the wolves and the background where the color separates in spots? :?
Thanks again and great job! :dummy:

After I let the piece dry I took my spray bottle full of water and just sprayed randomly over the whole thing. You obviously don't want to saturate the whole thing because then it will just turn into a giant blob! Then you just let your splotches of water dry and it usually gives it a cool effect! I've done this with regular watercolors on watercolor paper too, it looks a little different but can still come out neat.

You can also apply the water with a paint brush, or just about anything really, for a more controlled effect.

Oh, thank you so much for the tips! :hug: I actually made a watercolor piece recently inspired by your works because I just love your art and would totally buy one if I wasn't broke, lol! :love: I will post a picture of it soon, but I used all watercolors!
Again, you don't have to answer and I am so sorry to bother you, but I was curious as to what watercolors you use? :) Oh, and do you do tutorials or have a YouTube or something? :aww: Again, thank you so much and I apologize if I am pestering you! I am just curious and thirsting for knowledge, lol! :D

That's awesome, I can't wait to see it! And you're not bothering me at all. I use Winsor and Newton watercolors, here's a link.

There's also a winsor and newton cotman watercolors but I've never used them. I've always been curious about them though. O.o

I don't have any tutorials up but that is something fun to consider! I'm working mostly in watercolors an ink at the moment but it may be useful to somebody. And definitely make sure you let me know when you post that painting so I don't miss it! ;D

I finished it! :D It is inspired by some of your paintings! :hug: Sorry that it is not very good, but I am a beginning artist and this was my first real time using all watercolors and inks! :love: I have decided that I love watercolors and inks, too! :)

And I know that I would, personally, find tutorials to be very helpful! :hug: And I be that you would be great at them! Thank you again for talking with me and helping me out! You are so nice and an amazing artist! :aww:

I always appreciate your comments. ^.^ It was quite the experience using the canvas paper with watercolors and ink. I'm still trying to decide if I like it or not. I'm going to do another painting on it to help me decide.
