Shuswap Lake#6

Another layer of colour, more to come. It takes many layers, waiting for each layer to dry and then adding more paint. Waterco.our dries lighter than it looks during application making it imperative to be patient and see how it dries before making decisions. Certain areas will have the masking fluid removed before continuing and maybe more added in different areas. I tend to jump around the painting, touching up areas and sometimes "lifting" paint in some areas to ligjten them up. Lifting is done by wetting the area and blotting carefully with a clean cloth.
