Okay, so now we're getting somewhere..well at least I think I am. I've put some washes of colour on my fairy and a pop of colour on the flowers. The daisies never do look like much until we're done...they need more contrast to stand out..it's coming.
I don't like to use a masking agent, so I don't unless it's really needed. I'll dab colour out of my washes (sometimes with a dry brush, paper towel or q-tip) to lighten it up and show some form.
I'm always softening my edges..I don't like the hard lines watercolour can give you, at least not for my children's art.
I think two more blogs on this and I'll wrap this puppy up..perhaps sooner than later. Am I boring you yet??LOL
