gouache paintings

Gouache is new to me, I haven't yet painted with oil or acrylic and come from a 3d computer arts/ animation background. I took a painting class a few years ago and they made us use gouache. Here are some gifts I painted for the holidays. 5x7s and the 11x14 framed I did in artschool a few years ago. I don't think I have a style, I can see why its more an illustrative paint but can be used like oil. Need to buy more white. The hand of buddha, and the primary color vase and apple from life. Other two from photo reference.

Re: gouache paintings

Welcome! It's obvious you're not new to visual arts - these are all very nice, although I have to confess I don't have a clue what a Buddha's hand is My favorite is the vase and apple - I like the understated color and soft edges. Thanks for sharing.
For now, Ms Cash (aka Sheryl) - C & C welcome

Thumbs up Re: gouache paintings

I like the building in particular, nice treatment of values. It looks like a mix of watercolor and oil, which when you think about it, is exactly how gouache behaves.
