Then I couldn't stand it anymore, so I took all of the masking fluid off and "unwrapped" my painting!
Pretty fun, huh?! There are lines and spaces of all the tones in the painting that were kept nice and crisp by the masking fluid. haha - It seems odd to see my little critter all white instead of green. Hmmm... maybe this little critter won't be grey after all!
Just joking (maybe)! I gave the little critter a light wash of grey and warm browns, and added some more detail and color to the horseshoe. I also added some of the shadows. I keep thinking that I want to add some dry grass on the right side. What do you think?
Fall definitely makes me think about taking classes, but, until I can manage to go to another watercolor class, I am going to have fun with a library book. Currently I am enjoying "Texture Techniques for Winning Watercolors" by Ray Hendershot. It's a really great book with lots of fun texture ideas clearly explained. It also has lots of step by step photos that show the results of his process. It's a little class at home! Nice to have a fun indoor project on these hot Summer days.
Hope you are having lots of Summer fun! Happy Creating!
