The Rain in Spain


In previous posts, I have talked about using a soft scrub brush to lift color.

This can be an older synthetic brush with a harder tip than the brush you paint with.

The soft scrub brush will not only lift color, it will also soften lines and edges.

For instance, I use this brush when making clouds; softening the edges and making them appear fluffy.

Lifting color with the scrub brush is also another way to fix a painting.

You can remove a small area by gently scrubbing the color away.

However, it is easier to lift opaque colors than staining, transparent colors.
