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.
