I won't be able to paint tomorrow so I better update the progress on the lanterns now, right?
The prints and kanji are finished and the mask removed, I missed a couple of spots when applying it but it's not a big deal, I painted out of the masking fluid at some spots too lol, don't ask me how but those doesn't look bad either, kind of interesting, or maybe I'm just being delusional, anyway the next time I sit to paint I'll be working with my old good watercolors on those large white lanterns, can't wait!
It looks mostly pure black, right? I don't have any close up to share but there're indeed a lot of patterns in those blacks.
