Flower painting III

Stage three sees the removal of the masking fluid after the thorough drying of the background washes.

You might notice, watercolour dries a couple of shades lighter than you paint it on !

I've also "lifted" out a few background grasses.. by running a clean damp brush over the paint, where I want the grass to be.


  1. Delicious background so far Pat, I'm wondering wich values are you going with the flowers and buterfly, guess I'll have to wait!

  2. Afraid so, Teresa :)
