Hice estas acuarelas para emplear una técnica de acuarela muy conocida, pero que yo nunca había probado, que consiste en echar sal sobre la acuarela húmeda para provocar una dispersión del pigmento y crear unas texturas muy bonitas.

I did these watercolors to use a well-known watercolor technique, but one that I had never tried, which is to pour salt on the wet watercolor to cause a dispersion of the pigment and create very nice textures.
