Lavender Farm Portrait #4

Some people act like you are committing a crime if you use masking fluid but I find that it really allows me to use much freer strokes of bold color as I paint wide areas.  There is nothing like being able to drop bright pools of color just where you want them to be. The foreground is darkened in lavender and deep purples and flowers are rendered. One of my favorite times begin as I start to remove the resist and see the whites left in reserve for the final detailing steps.lavenderFestPortrait04
