USE MASKING FLUID WITH AN APPLICATOR TO KEEP AREAS OF COLOUR AND SLOWLY BUILD UP LAYERS, STARTING WITH THE PALER TONES FIRST. REFERING TO THE PUPPY PORTRAIT BELOW, I STARTED WITH WHITE, THEN ADDED BURNT SIENNA MIXED WITH COBALT/ULTRA MARINE GRADUALLY DARKENING THE ARTWORK. WHEN ALL AREAS WERE COVERED WITH COLOUR AND DRY (I USE A HAIRDRIER TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS) I PEELED OFF ALL THE MASKING TAPE AND ADDED MORE DETAIL WITH A VERY SMALL BRUSH.

TO CREATE SEA FOAM AND WAVES SPATTER MASKING FLUID ON TO WATER COLOUR PAPER WITH A TOOTHBRUSH, LEAVE TO DRY THEN BUILD UP LAYERS OF WATER COLOUR FOR THE SEA COLOUR. I USED THIS TECHNIQUE FOR THE SEA IN 'GIRL ON MIRISSA BEACH' I ALSO ADDED SPOTS OF WHITE ACRYLIC FOR THE LARGER AREAS.

Rub off the masking fluid - dont worry if it looks a mess - using a small brush will soon start to pick up the details.
