    This is really pretty. I still have to watch all of the Studio Ghibli movies. Even though I haven't watched them yet, I love the animation.

    I think the term you were looking for was dappled sunlight? Very beautiful scenery and kudos to you for getting creative! Painting with paints scares me, it's too intimidating/advanced for me lmao. This reminds me of a painting I did in high school which also had lots of green and blue, it was of the inside of a greenhouse, and when you peeled the tape and said how satisfying that was I got flashbacks lol (I also used tape for the white frames/supports of the greenhouse so I had to do a lot of tape peeling)

    One time I couldn't find my masking fluid, so I used rubber cement. I was so mad at myself cuz it wouldn't really come off at first like you had in the video. It got so frustrating that I had to go stuff it in a corner. A month later, I finally feel okay enough to continue, and the rubber cement came off so easily. No clue why cuz it was dry the forst try

    Love your channel! Did you know the RU-clip algorithm in Jan 2020 will be using AI to shut down child appealing content to demonetize and disable comments, the ai will use things like color etc, and this is potentially going to kill art channels!

    If you're only using water colors it's just easier to leave the white of the paper for white. Watercolor white is not very opaque. It's mostly used for mixing and it should still be used lightly because it's so easy to muddy everything up. But you're using multimedia and the white you used was gouache. So different techniques apply 🤷 as long as it looks good, and you're happy with it, who cares lmao

    So for future reference, when masking fluid is being that hard a rubber cement eraser will be the best way to get it up

    you're "supposed" to use the white of the paper and I admit, I am an advocate for this because I primarily use watercolors and love the way it looks.. but I do use white gouache A LOT too and very often combine gouache and watercolor within entire paintings. I love the way it looks with the white of the paper and it takes some practice to get used to thinking that way but I cheat all the time ;) lovely job btw!!

    In one of your vlogs you said you were procrastinating because you were afraid of your next art piece, but let me tell you this came out beautifully and you can tell it’s ghibli inspired and it even inspired me to try painting again because I’ve been doing a ton of digital art and I think I need to get back to traditional for a bit and put more of me in my art. Great job on this painting, can’t wait for your next!! 💕

    Tip for lifting watercolor where you don’t want it: Mr. Clean magic eraser. It’s a watercolor painting eraser!

    Gouache isn't cheating, it's your friend. Also, even though i have never seen that particular masking fluid in motion or one that old, best way i was told to get it off is via a textured tea towel.

    So as I understand there are different types of masking fluid. Some that is made to rub off and some that sticks to a rubber cement eraser. Maybe you had the second type? (or it was just too old/separated?)

  • Soekieloekie Kaassoufflé

    I heard other's quoting as well you don't suppose to use white paint but use the white of the paper.. but.. with art.. is there a suppose to do or don't at all? 🤔
    I find the white of the paper often too white and often I prefer smooth washes then keeping things white.. white paint exist so why the hustle 🤷‍♀️ never really understood that quote. do what you want and suits you in art there are no rules only free expression.

    • Soekieloekie Kaassoufflé
      Soekieloekie Kaassoufflé 2 months ago

      @MetalMagpie 🤔 I misunderstood you before. arches cold press don't have much structure in the paper and on that I don't see a clear difference so on that paper can use watercolor and gouache togheter fine but I can imagen with other papers the difference is more visseble

    • MetalMagpie
      MetalMagpie 2 months ago

      @Soekieloekie Kaassoufflé You won't see paper structure through gouache (unless you water it down) because it's opaque. But you will see paper structure through watercolour. That's what the difference is. Watercolour allows you to see the paper, whereas gouache covers it.

    • Soekieloekie Kaassoufflé
      Soekieloekie Kaassoufflé 2 months ago

      @MetalMagpie I have schmincke horadem gouache and I don't see paper structure through the paint actually.. at least not noticeable enough for me to notice. that perhaps differs with the brand of paint being used 🤷‍♀️ but to be honest I don't have much white areas in my paintings so I don't have much problems with it at all

    • MetalMagpie
      MetalMagpie 2 months ago

      The reason people say to not use white paint with watercolour is to keep a uniform texture. Watercolour doesn't cover the texture of the paper, whereas gouache does. So if you use white gouache, those areas will be a different texture to the areas where you only used watercolour. It's most noticeable on the cold press paper, which has a strong texture. But as you say, art has no real rules. So if you don't mind the texture (or actively want texture variation in your painting) then no worries. :)

    Your hair is! Pretty in pink, guuuurrrrl! I love it and the curls are super cute! Awesome video too! I love your personality, style and attitude and it's great that you don't limit yourself or your art by doing what "everyone" says you should or not doing what they say you shouldn't. Art should liberate, never hinder or limit. You're the creator and it's your art, so yeah, go you! Your picture came out awesome!

    I use that masking fluid and love it. Yours does it look super old. It should dry to an almost turquoise color - not brownish. Also did you let it completely dry before you start painting? If not that might be what caused the paste like consistency.

  • CosmicKaori

    personally I found that windsor and newton masking fluid will still have a hard time with not ripping the paper, i recommend Qor, it comes off super easy and doesnt rip the paper

  • Hapito

    Yeah I have that same Masking fluid and even new it chews at the papr or simply rips off an entire layer.

    Huge fan of studio ghibli and I think you definitely matched that style. As for the girls dress i like the blue but it might have been interesting to paint the ribbon the terra-cotta color.

  • AmmyWolf

    Just a little advice. You needed more water and try a wet on wet method for big block of area. It will let your art be best streaky like this piece is.
    Also it's not a purist attitude it just in general it looks better to have natural white showing than adding. plus it makes you think in advance and actually get a understand your composition. If all the professional watercolor artist recommend using natural white of the paper maybe that something you should actually consider it than just them purist.
