This was my second attempt on the same still lifes. I used masking fluid for the highlights on the glass jar and corn kernels. The masking fluid is like rubber cement. Once it dries, you can freely paint over the area without fussing with which parts to leave out. When you are ready to reveal the highlights, you simply rub the dried masking fluid off with your finger or the sticky side of some scotch tape. The preserved white areas will have a sharp edge to it though, so if you need to soften the edges, you will have to go over it slowly with just the right values. In this exercise, I left the highlights as they were and did not retouch any of the edges.
