Progress on "Zen Moment" watercolor

I had fun playing with this painting.  I tried miskit (mask) liquid over the fish like water reflection, then painted the water over it.  Then I took the mask off.  Maybe the painting over it should have been darker to show the masked area better.  Now I think I'm at the point where I could practise lifting out color, and lifting out highlights.  Maybe use a razor blade to get back to pure white paper ... and maybe a few dark shadows here and there ...

Wow! Carolyn!
This picture is volumetric! Water and lotus flower stands above the surface, but it's hard to do when water and flower in this perspective (aspect)! The picture comes alive and alive! :-)
Very beautiful watercolor!
