Masking Fluid (Liquid Frisket) Watercolor Technique
Adding an illusion of depth
I wanted the covered tabletop to have a sense of depth and worked on the areas in shadow.
Using my #8 red sable round brush I loosely mixed Cobalt Blue, Pthalocyanine Blue, and Dioxazine purple in a couple areas of my palette.
Varying the colors as I went, I graded the shadow areas from cooler richer blues to warmer lighter blues in the foreground.
