This is a new frontier for me and I'm enjoying working with this medium. Snapped this photo of our Basenji riding the sofa when we rearranged the living room a couple of years ago. The black blobs will be a tapestry type fabric when I'm done. Well, that's the plan at least.

Size is about 17" x 19". M. Graham gouache paints.

Linda, Gouache is divine! It seems like the perfect medium to me -- especially since I can lose my whites quicker than I can lose my keys.

I had posted my triad painting in the Gallery also -- it's down on about page 57 now. :lol: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=458603. Comments are allowed there. :)

Great start Deb, interesting to see the different technique with gouache.

I'm loving this Deb, and I'm also loving that you are loving it! :lol: There's a lot of love in this one! :D :heart:

The part I like the best is the painting in the upper left. I recognize that!

So tell us more about painting with gouache!
