EPSON MFP imageI’m on break for another week and have had the chance to experiment with gouache. Gouache is an opaque watercolor paint. I’m finding it to be a more natural medium for me than transparent watercolor or oil.

I also had the chance to go to the zoo yesterday so I’m thinking of trying to paint some birds or animals.

    Thanks for sharing. I really like the different quality of the light. It gives it a dreamy quality.
    Is she from a photograph or your imagination?

    I look forward to seeing if the quality is the same if you try painting the birds or animals.

    Try using gouache on a rigid support like gessoboard. 🙂

      Thanks, I’m going to try it. I prefer really smooth surfaces, so I think some student canvases that I bought won’t work. My teacher gave me some small Frederix panels. I’m going to try them out. Thanks cavepainter!
