I finally finished my watercolor painting, Sheltered Cove. I began this painting back in May, but with my kids home from school and space at a premium, I got very little painting done the last several months. In a year of many changes, my family also recently moved to a home on the outskirts of the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. Our new home also includes a studio space for me. After many years painting at the kitchen table, I have a space of my own to create my artwork. I’m so grateful and excited for this opportunity. My first order of business was to finish this painting. It was based on a photograph I took from a trip down the Raquette River. After using Windsor and Newton masking fluid for years, I tried a new product called Incredible White Mask Liquid Frisket, to preserve some whites during the painting. It worked terrific and I would totally recommend it. Here’s a sample of the grasses where I used the product.
I also used the frisket on the grasses at the foreground of the painting. Here is the finished painting Sheltered Cove.
Awesome! And congrats on the new house!
All the best, Bridget
