What is a splatter technique? Why and when would you want to implement such a technique?

In creating art, particularly in watercolor painting, there is an opportunity to use one of the most spontaneous and visually exciting techniques. The use of splatter painting suggests spontaneity, improvisation, and exploration of the unknown with your painting. Having a visual accent to add with this technique can be quite fun as well.

In this video, I invite you to explore further into the many uses of this technique and perhaps create your own style and technique for creating splatter in your artwork.

Hopefully, you will be able to achieve certain effects and continue the aspects of play and exploration as well as maybe be free to be a bit messy too!
