YUPO PEONY 5
I was surprised that there was no bleed with the masking tape initially used, even though paint was added on top of it several times.
The taping technique gives a unique look to a painting, but it does take patience. Of course, doesn’t watermedia always require some patience!
I’m pleased to say that there wasn’t much problem with the tape peeling up the paint – other than a few areas where the background paint was a bit thicker. I had anticipated that problem, and was extremely careful to pull back into the peony so that I minimized the amount of paint torn away.
