mottled colour wash paint effect

A basic colour wash in several tones of grey which was then mottled with a wet sea sponge and softened off, producing a more complex paint effect with added depth and movement. The flexibility of the colour wash technique means that many colours can be used together to provide uniformity or contrasts within the design. Colour washing is a practical way of introducing various colours into one wall.
