Sailboat 2 - A Work in Progress

I had a little bit of time to work on a painting and I decided that I should work on the last of the sketches I did when we went on the Stoney Lake Boat Cruise last year.

I started work on the outline drawing of Sailboat 2, tightening up some of the details.

Once I was happy with the drawing I transferred it onto watercolour paper.

In order to keep the sails and the boat white, I used a liquid masking fluid on the image and set it aside to dry.

I will post this piece at a later date once I have completed the sky and the water and I am ready to remove the mask to start work on the boat.
