Have you ever thought about how often an artist has to paint drapery? Drapery is the art term for folds and wrinkles in fabric. In this video we're going to paint some extra tough drapery: the American flag.
Painting with watercolor is difficult so we decided to solve this problem with masking fluid. The stripes are easier, but the flag's wrinkles pose their own challenges.
