Lorraine Brown - Week #23

Not everyone likes granulating pigments but I do. I just love watching them do their thing.
Daniel Smith Bloodstone Genuine is a pigment I did experiment with a little earlier this year. It really does race around when it hits the water and then proceeds to offer up interesting texture. Here I have combined it with Winsor & Newton Quinacridone Gold.

Yesterday for my watercolour class it provided a great example of creating using a sprayed paper first and then spattering pigment with a brush . 

We also tested how well it would lift out.

Conclusion - definitely a favourite contender for me. One tip - the colour on the tube didn't match the pigment very well so would be hard to trust buying what you see in a sealed tube.
