    Not a dumb at all.

    Ctrl + D will deselect all that is selected.

    Alt + Left mouse button will allow you to draw around an areas that is
    masked and have it removed.

    Bill,

    Grant answered your question but you might also wonder how to "deselect"
    only portions of the selected areas. To do this use the selection brush
    and hold the alt key down when using it.
