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. 🙂

Removing Masking Fluid

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.

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. I’m not an artistic, but common sense tells me a finger would be much better than an eraser. You’re so smart, Patsy! 🙂

    • Thanks, Jill. 🙂 An eraser of any kind can tear up the paper if it’s used to hard. I use a kneaded eraser to get some pencil marks off of mine, because it just lifts the pencil off nicely without having to rub on it.
