How to put a perfect setting sun into a sunset .

I use a small sized velcro sticker on my watercolour paper to blot out the position of the sun when painting a sunset. You can get these stickers in different sizes and they can be used and reused.
When you have painted your sky washes you can easily lift your sticker off. It will give you give a perfect round outline and the paint does'nt seep underneath it. Simple !! So much easier than trying to work your washes around a blank round space or trying to get the masking fluid to a perfect circle.
