Another wonderful class by the Watercolor Witch really challenged my ipad painting skills. How do you imitate straw splatter painting? Well I used some free brushes that I found photoshoptutorials.ws - which were actually meant to resemble blood splatters. I then cut out part of the splatters that looked like straw splatters. I also used several different blend modes on the layers and adjusted the saturation and hues in the galaxy painting to make it more pleasing to the eye.
