Paint an old castle using Salt & Watercolour


Do you strive to paint in a loose way with your Watercolours, enjoy beautiful colourful Watercolour washes and like me love painting? Then this tutorial is just for you.

Let me guide you through the process from the initial drawing to the finished Watercolour painting of an old castle


Let me show you how to paint this textured old castle with Watercolour and salt.

At first glance it does look like a complicated subject but once I share with you my steps from the initial drawing to the finished painting you will find that a painting like this is very achievable and actually rather fun to paint.

As always, the line drawing and reference photo is attached for you to download
