Making Reflections on Glass

Q. Can I use masking fluid to make reflections on glass?

A. This is actually a very simple technique in which you don’t have to be too precise to succeed. See my painting Isn’t Life Grand? All I did on this olive oil bottle was mask out some white reflections I wanted to save, along with the lighter areas where the lemons are reflected onto the glass.
