Gigi I like this but sorry I can't help with the eraser I've never used this program.

Thank you all, I appreciate the positive words. Yeah, Klondikemike, dogwaffle is pretty good, especially since I use the free version!

I installed the free vs and can't figure out how to do much of anything, and can get a brush and that's about it. Nice bird, I've always loved herons.

I've been using the free version of Dogwaffle for about a year now and I'm really enjoying it. Don't know if there is really a "lifting out" in the program but you can use many of the watercolor and other brushes and white (assuming your background is white) or a lighter color to get a lifting out effect. Play with the opacity slider on the Tool menu and the Bleed setting on the Brush Settings (left click on the brush image on the Tool menu) until you get the effect you want. The Default brush and white is an eraser.

I've attached a work in progress where I'm "lifting out" individual grasses from a mass of grass and from the darker background trees. I used the small watercolor brush in Dogwaffle and white and light green/yellow colors with varying amounts of bleed and opacity to get the effect.

Hope this helps.

Cheers
