Masking Fluid (Liquid Frisket) Watercolor Technique
Final strokes and clean up
I let the work on the pear dry and then continued modeling the shading on the pear.
Using cool gray washes (Burnt Sienna and Pthalocyanine Blue) I further modeled the shadow side and other areas of the pear.
The tablecloth needed to be more fully realized so I devised a simple floral design over the “X” squares to pull it together. Using a #4 round red sable and Alizarin Crimson in varying values I systematically painted the pattern on the cloth.
After painting was complete, I let the painting dry again and removed the last of the frisket using the natural rubber pickup.
