Painting an Egret

I teach a watercolor class on Tuesdays to a couple
of students. This is my demonstration piece for today's lesson:
using the masking fluid to mask off the white areas.

When the masking fluid is dry, it peels right off!  It is kind of like
rubber cement, and it saves the white paper underneath.  We were able
to paint the wet, loose blue wash right over the masked white bird.

Watercolor palette we were using

This is Dana's painting..not quite finished.  We will have to
finish it up next week.  She did a great job!

mine...will post when I am finished!

I am enjoying getting to paint with some students....
one of my favorite things to do.  I love these
white egrets...they are so "Louisiana".
