Watercolor 365 illustrations- Masking Fluid

 Illustration of masking fluid

Part of my idea for illustrating Watercolor 365 was to start off with photographs of my supplies and painting tools. Then as the book progressed, my favorite supplies slowly turned into paintings.

One of these illustrations is of masking fluid. So, using my painting know how and my Photoshop skills, I combined a photo of masking fluid with a painting, creating the above image.

Here is the original photo:

And here is the painted version:

This illustration is an earlier image in the book, therefore it is more photograph. 
But can you tell which part is painted now that you know what I did?


  1. the lid looks painted but its a neat idea and look combining the two techniques :)

    1. Yes, the lid is painted and into the shadow of the bottle. Had great fun creating these.
