I saw a painting similar to this one on the internet and felt that this concept had value as a lesson for my intermediate watercolor students at Riverside Art Center. This would be a lesson in drawing with liquid mask - using it as a tool to use it as expressive line which becomes part of the compositional format.
The painters will actually draw with the mask as they would with a pencil or pen. This painting is 11" x 9" and is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano cold-pressed watercolor paper. It will also be a lesson in wet-on-wet watercolor painting in basically warm colors except for the blue in the sky. This is different from the work we have been doing.
