Lovely clean washes Sarah. What do you think of masking fluid, I can’t get on with it I always seem to rub half the paper off with it!

Very good indeed

Thank you both for your kind comments. Fiona I think the masking fluid will take some getting used to - I think I applied too much, and not evenly enough, and then it was a bit hard to remove and did damage the paper a little - but I feel it's worth persevering for the effects you can create. (Don't think much of its ammonia-like smell either, but it's manageable as it's only really noticeable when it's right under your nose!)

Lovely work Sarah.

Hi this is beautiful I love the reflection and crisp snow xx

Simple but yet so effective, especially with the reflection. Really well painted.

The penultimate painting exercise from Stephen Coates' Watercolour Enigma (shared with kind permission of the author). My first go at using masking fluid.
