MSED: Bird a Day #27- Courtship under the Bower

Here is the new watercolor painting. As far as bird a day projects go I think I will keep the next few less time consuming. though I did have a lot of fun. I tried a new technic with this one - masking areas with frisket

It came in this cute little bottle. I discovered that it is made of tinted liquid rubber. I never knew.

Here is my line drawing with the frisket painted into areas that I didn't want the background color to go.
At this point I just hoped it comes off the painting better than it came out of my brushes (I ruined one of my really good round brushes).

Here is the painting with the background washed in.

Yeah! It rubbed right off!

Starting to paint
Have a great rest of the weekend everyone. And here's hoping you get a little wooing in.


  1. This is so cool. I have never heard of that liquid stuff you used, but I bet it would come in handy for negative space drawings. I set the final pic as my desktop :)

  2. You are so sweet. The friskit stuff is really cool. just don't use a good brush.Ha ha. I bought it from Dick Blick. Michaels wanted too much for it.

  3. i love it!! can i buy it?
