52 Weeks of Watercolor Painting 2017 No.13 #Watercolor #52WeeksOfWatercolorPainting #StillmanAndBirn

I used a technique that I saw somewhere (and I wish I had kept the link or written the name of the book where I found it).  You splatter masking fluid at random, let it dry and paint a wash of watercolor over it.  When that wash dries, you splatter more masking fluid, and repeat.  Once you've finished you remove the masking fluid and have splatters of underlying color.

I'm using a Stillman and Birn 9x12 Beta series wirebound sketchbook for all my '52 Weeks of Watercolor Paintings 2017'.

The brushes used were Silver Black Velvet Rounds, size 8 and 16 and a Princeton Snap brush round size 4 for lifting color and small detail. The pigments used were Daniel Smith Wisteria, Mijello Mission Gold Cobalt Blue, Permanent Rose, Bamboo Green, Viridian, Ivory Black and Lemon Yellow,
