I got the idea for this painting from an add a long time ago. So I cut masking tape into long pieces and pasted them on 140lb Arches cold press, and began painting. Laying in the background in multiple layers, along with friscit and then more layers of color. Then I concentrated on bringing "soul" to the birds, as well as finishing touches.

Mary Ann, thank you once again for your critique. I absolutely pay attention to what you say, and look forward to buying some frosted tape to try. It's a lot of fun to paint like this- Barb

What an interesting idea with the use of the masking tape. Actually I hope it was drafting tape, because masking tape can pull up the surface of the paper! Another tape to try is the Scotch 810 tape (frosted variety....NOT the clear kind!) Then you can see through it if necessary and know if any paint has bled under it.
