Very cool, I like the play on lightness with the weight and actual brightness surrounding the performance

I like this. It is beautifully balanced, in more than one way.
Also, amazing texture in the background!
You are one of the reasons I keep struggling with watercolour :) .

Hello *puimun , Your work is always impressive. This "Lightness" has some sort of extra energy, though. It is a stunning piece. The blue on the top half of the paper has depth that really works.

Your art fascinates me so much. I'm guessing you used salt here and just can't seem to master the technique! I love the level of detail that goes into your work - just how do you fit it all in? And how do you prevent the colours from distorting the paper surface? I'd love to see an in-depth step by step sometime...!

I use strathmore lightweight illustration board, so it doesn't warp. It's very thick. And I have many step by steps in the books I've written. :) [link]
