Tool:
- A4 Watercolor Paper
- Watercolor
- Photoshop 7 (Touch up)

Time Taken: 30 mins sketch, 3 hours color

This is a PHENOMENAL piece. It's quite melochany, since it's in black and white and since the subject of this drawing is Essi, there is kind of a deeper meaning to the colors ;) How did you use the salt though...?

You drew Essi beautifully! The splotches that form from her hair strands are like ink drops floating in the water. But a teeeeeeensy bit clumped up together ^^ But it does have this very chaotic yet united surreal feeling to it ;)

ah, i hardly see the salt... did u sprinkle some of it late? o.o It might have been too wet or too dry i guess? It's a hard balance though. :D Love seeing your watercolors.

Too dry would be the reason lol. I definitely need to put more water ^^; And need to put more salt too.
