Sometimes as you are painting, you start to watch a bloom or blossom spread over your paper in the wrong place!!
This might put you into a panic and you quickly grab your brush and dab at it with a wet brush, hoping that by adding more water it will go away.
It just makes it worse!!!
What to do????
Instead of grabbing a wet brush,
grab a soft, dry hake brush instead.
Gently brush over the bloom to help evenly distribute the water that is already in the paper.
The brush will also gently lift some of that excess water.
The only trick with this though is that the bloom needs to still be in the growing stage.
Try to catch it before it stops growing and before the paper becomes too dry.
