Wax As A Resist
pocket sketching with kath macaulay

John Singer Sargent, and others in the 1800s used a candle stub for wax as a resist. It is perfect for wind on water, bright reflections, and trees against the sky. Can be done in layers, holding each color as you build layers. It is never messy and is archival so you don't remove it.
