We're talking about texture in your work this week, and what better place to explore texture than doors and windows.
One of the ways artist Judy Morris captures texture in her paintings is by using salt effects. If you'd like to learn more, read our article Understanding Salt Effects in Watercolor and check out Judy's video, Tuscan Textures.
If you'd like to use more texture in your representational work, check out:
