Pears Four

Now I'm removing the masking fluid.
This is where I found out using a powerful sprayer is not the best idea .
It took almost half of an eraser to remove it, as you can see!

I don't use my fingers to remove making fluid - after the time I got a blister doing just that!

Here's the painting after the mask was removed


and here it is when I have enhanced the lower half to look like marble and painted a first pale wash over the pears.

All I have to do after this stage is paint one more wash on the pears, and she's done.
You'll see the finished painting tomorrow.

  2. You're welcome, Sheryl :)
    No point us all making the same mistake!

    I love the way the marble worked.. when I started, marble was not in my mind, but only as it progressed did I get that feel - so ran with it :)

  9. thanks, Jane - it is a bit like batik at this stage, but the final stage reminds me more of glass pears :)
