5 Cli ppin g an d Layer mas ks
Ever since Photoshop introduced Clipping masks and Layer masks to its armoury, non-destructive painting gave every artist the ability – and confidence – to paint worry-free. The Clipping mask enables me to paint over my shape using however many clipping masks as I want without having to worry about going over the main layer’s silhouette.
Painting with layer masks also means I’m able to paint with textures rather than the traditional method of painting with one colour. This creates more colour variety and results in more happy accidents.
