Masking Fluid


Had heard about masking fluid while painting with water colours.. Used it for the first time.. And this is the result.. Personally I feel this painting is just average.. Definitely not one of my best.

Wish we could use masking fluid to mask the emotions that the heart feels.. Sometimes revealing whatever you feel may just not be the best thing! That is if you think with your head.. But when the heart takes over, thinking logically stops…and once you are in the grip of your emotions, you have absolutely no control over your actions.. You are swayed, sashayed and tossed about, without even being aware of it.

The excitement is heady, but the disappointment can be deep too. But as Robert Frost said “Happiness makes up in height what it lacks in length”

  1. I like the painting. I can really feel the light.

    I need masking fluid when I'm drinking -- I tend to reveal way too much, and feel sorry later...
