For Titanic's 100th anniversary, although not an accurate representation of the ship (no references were used).
Media: watercolor, gouache, colored pencils, white gel pen, HB pencil on A3 watercolor paper.
I had various difficulties with this piece. First the technique wet on wet didn't work for me (it almost destroyed the paper - I use 250 g/sm watercolor paper); also adding salt didn't do the usual effect and the overall color scheme turned out very muted (perhaps it's the cheap watercolors?) while the paper buckled so hard I had to glue it to another sheet just to be able to photograph it (wrinkles were removed digitally) . And to top it all, all the 50 or so pictures I took of it with all the modes of my camera in natural sunlight turned out fabulously grainy... How on Earth do you, dear painters, get such great results with your works? Does anyone care to share some experience?
