WDE June 12, sketches of Maggie and boy meets dog

Thanks for hosting, Christine, and the fun reference photos! These are both in the spirit of. I'm trying to get a handle on gouache, which I find tricky, but I like the idea of them.

The first is 5.5"x8.5" in a sketchbook with toned paper and took about 15 minutes.



The second is 9"x12" and I was practicing just using sepia, ultramarine blue deep, and white. This probably took an hour. I know it's VERY sketchy (and the photo is a bit dark; it's very gloomy today in Portland...)



I may return to that beach scene later this week with acrylics. Hard to resist such an amiable confrontation.

Good job on both of these. WDEs are great places to play with new materials.

Re: WDE June 12, sketches of Maggie and boy meets dog

There is always so much energy in your paintings, I love both of these.
I use gouache just like I use acrylics and to me they have very similar characteristics. Fast drying, very forgiving and such vibrant colours. I started using them a few years ago when I went on a tutored art holiday to Nice and gouache was what we used. It took a little practice to get confident with them and I use them all the time now for small pieces especially.
