I got tired of taping and went to the use of a plastic ruler for some of those grout lines. Of course the paint bled underneath and my right hand was a little shakier since I had to use the left to hold the ruler in place. So the painting looks smudgy and smeary. But I will sharpen up those edges over time.

Also, the best property of the tape is its ability to stick tight and prevent bleeding, but this is also a detriment in that it sometimes peels away a layer of paint (see the left side cheek of the woman in the painting). So I need to use the tape cautiously.
