Slow Work on the Bison

Again, using my phone, I’m posting today’s work on the bison. Reflections and weeds in the water have me going slowly and cautiously.

    Thanks for sharing your process. It’s so helpful for those of us who still have training wheels on our paintbrush.

    Beginner question: Are you masking all those little white spaces or laying in the pigment with a small brush while preserving them? I can’t tell from the photo.

      Thank you for your interest. I use the Masquepen to mask the thin weed-like like lines. I use a rigger brush for the actual lines of paint. After scraping off the masking, I make adjustments as I feel necessary. Sometimes I will put another layer of mask lines over it. And then I will paint some more over that before stripping the second layer off.
