Watercolor Painting Process – Part 5
This is a picture of painting over the parts that I had masked out earlier. This is a 2″ brush for making it easier to paint over very large spaces. I just purchased this brush recently when it was half priced. It has taken a little bit of getting used to, because the handle is very fat!
This is what the painting will look like before you take the masking fluid off.
Here is a picture of how I get the masking fluid off. I just rub it off with my thumb. Some books tell you to use some type of eraser, but I have had bad things happen when I tried that. So I feel more comfortable using my thumb. 🙂
Here is a picture of the background I painted around the turtle. I did not like the way the sky turned out, because I didn’t like the way the clouds looked. So I ended up painting it much darker later and putting more stormy looking clouds in. I will post those pictures in my next post. I will explain how I “fixed” my mistake then.
