masking

I  started the first day with sketching for a painting, and tried to mask some detail with my new Daniel Smith artist masking fluid.  I thought I'd love it, with applicators to apply thin lines. Well, it did not turn out the way I've hoped, it came out either too thin or too thick. I ended up finishing with my old Winsor and Newton one. I will see how the painting goes with this.

Looking forward to seeing it, Jean. How frustrating with the new mask. Hope your next trial is more satisfying.

Thank you for the smart water brush tip and demo at Goose Ridge Winery at a 2015 Urban Sketchers outing!

Bobi, The masking was terrible, but I am trying to finish the painting...My teacher Yi-Chien said *finish it, no matter what*. It's a learning, and I'll post it of course.
