Chakras Mastik Prep

Happy Day After Thanksgiving!

Now you can see how my desk is arranged so that I can see my reference materials as I work on this painting.

The first task is to apply mastik or watercolor resist wherever I want to reserve white paper. Doing this allows me to paint wet on wet without worrying about avoiding where I will need clean white to be. It makes my hands much more sure of themselves. You probably notice how confusing the darker color where the resist is, but you easily get used to it and are able to know it will look way different soon.
