Bowl 2

This 8"x8" gouache on watercolor paper.
On this one when I wanted to change a particular
color just a little I tried putting a wash over top
of the opaque color. Sometimes it worked and
sometimes it didn't. I think I'll stick with putting
opaque over opaque.
C&C welcome.

Re: Bowl 2

You are striking a subdued note in these works. It makes for a harmonious, interesting painting. Gary

Re: Bowl 2

Thanks Gary, I'm doing these simple still lifes
to try and improve my blending technique.
Time to move on to something different.

I think that's the beauty of gouache - it's always a surprise but does shine at using it opaquely.
