Queen Anne's Lace - Sponging on Liquid Masking

Get the Most Out of Your Sponging Skills and Spark Your Creativity

This course will turn out best if you have liquid masking and a small piece of natural sponge.

  • Links to all materials are included in the Introduction.

Let your creativity go wild in this newly revised lesson on Queen Anne's Lace. You'll find two outline pages and two videos (one new, one old) that demonstrate this easy technique, as well as links to many more reference photos you can download and use.

Many artists know the great results sponging paint can give for believable foliage and trees, but that's only half the things you can do. You can also sponge masking to create quick and easy unique areas of white or lighter colors.

This lesson is designed to spark creativity and provide you with useful guided practice in masking, sponging, and wet on wet backgrounds - all valuable skills to add to your painting toolbox!

Happy Painting!

Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher

My story is simple.

I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.

Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).

My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.

Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!

Happy Painting.
