So this is my second attempt at the previous technique and I think I have more of a handle on the idea. Essentially, it helps to think of the water colour technique itself which is ink on wet. Using a few strokes of the brush to gesture a form by suggestion rather than detail. (Is my theory).
Here are my notes.

|Step 1) Is to mask out the main areas of colour and whilst doing so... |
create textures by playing with the density of your mask.
|Step 2) Is to create a general water colour background to sit your figure into.|
|Step 3) Is a process of blending, painting in and unmasking your figure |
to reveal or hide details according to your own artistic direction
|You can save these brushes that I created for this project for your own experiments.|
