tape on, tape off
One technique I use sometimes is to place tape on the board. After painting over it the tape can be removed revealing interesting shapes and exposed under layers. Allowing the painting to tell its own story rather than imposing a predetermined plot can allow a delicate interplay to develop. Experiment! The plot thickens.. .

I’ve been using tape for some time in both watercolour and Acrylic. I find it the best way for getting a horizon, that is if you want a straight one although with watercolour you have to wet it before removing or you will tear the paper.
