I can't see the picture, so I don't know the extent of the "error". One suggestion is letting it dry and using white chalk on top to add highlights, or turn the whole area grayish. I'm sure you tried tried wetting it again and blotting it up. Depending on the watercolors brand, that can be very effective.Brandy
You may try using some plain paper towels, the kind you use in the kitchen. No quilted patterns, just plain "weave". Spray the paper towel with lukewarm water, then lay on the shadow area; press lightly at first. This lifting technique usually works, but make sure the towel is damp not soaking wet, otherwise the other areas of the painting will start to "bleed".

My student kinda messed up on her skeleton by using black watercolor for the shadows. Any watercolorists out there have a suggestion?

- If she is a student and just learning.Why not do it again?That way she will master the craft through the mistakes made....instead of trying to camouflage them.Kamla
