In the December 2008 issue of Watercolor Artist, Joye Moon explores surface qualities and textures in watercolor with our Watercolor Essentials column. “Part of the fascination comes with the opportunities watercolor affords for exploring a multitude of surface qualities and textures,” she says. “Experimenting with techniques such as pouring, scraping and splattering paint, as well as using common household materials to create a variety of finishes will enhance your paintings and fuel your creative spirit.” To download a free step-by-step demo on painting abstract florals, click here: MoonDemo.pdf
