I get asked a lot about how I keep the white lines in my paintings and how I get the textures. While I’d like to pretend I have incredible eye hand control, in actuality, there are simple techniques I use.
Very much like a cartoon, I start with drawing the general shapes with pencil, then go over them with masking fluid. This is latex or another blend that goes on with a brush or squeeze bottle, dries, and blocks off the area I want to stay white. It rubs off later in the process.

Here is the painting before I worked on it digitally.
Here it is after.
I like to hear your comments and stay in touch.
