Masquerade by Maxfield Parrish @ the High Museum

oil paint on board, 1922

Here’s a painting technique that I don’t know. How did he do that harlequin design in oil paint ?  If anyone out there on a computer knows the tip, please tell me.  Is there a masking fluid for oil paint ?  Or is this a lost technique , because the art schools don’t teach the academic ways ?
