Update on Wedding Portrait Commission

I finally had the chance to get some hours in on this wedding portrait.  I have never painted a stone house before, so this was definitely new territory.  Initially I had planned to use some new watercolor pencils for the stone.  But as I studied the mansion, I decided to use a masking fluid approach instead.  Below is a picture of how I applied the masking fluid, and then did multiple washes to get the different colored stones.
After peeling off the fluid, I added more detail to the mansion and foliage.

Still a long way to go, but I have DEFINITELY made some progress!

Stay tuned and have a great evening!

    On peut parfois utiliser une éponge, mais ça manque souvent de précision.
    Je pense que vous avez choisi la meilleure solution.
