A fine example of gouache technique Alex. Gouache gives so many possibilities.

Re: Gouache Corner June 2015 - Free for All

Beautiful, Alex! I love the look of the Morning Glory, winding through those fabulous greens. A sight to behold. And the poppies, showing an array of colors we don't usually get to behold. Plus, the angles of the blossoms, defining that wonderful COI! And, a glass vase! Who can pick a favorite, they are both beautiful!!!

Re: Gouache Corner June 2015 - Free for All

Duh, Alex, I knew that, and why I said Poppy is beyond me. Probably because it took me forever to know the name of Dandelions... I called them Daffodils over and over again for a long, long time! So embarrassing , but its a Stroke thing so I've learned to be kinder on myself....

All that being said, it is still an absolutely gorgeous painting!!!!

Re: Gouache Corner June 2015 - Free for All

I haven't had as much time to paint lately but I thought I would upload a few gouache paintings/sketches I did this month. The first one is about 9x12 inches, the other two are about 6x8".







This last week I've been experimenting more with techniques, being much more generous with that precious expensive paint on the palette and loading the brush with a thicker, kind of yoghurty consistency rather than messing around with thin washes (I love the way you can do both with gouache). It's most visible in the third sketch of the small stream, which I did in about 30 minutes from a photo I took in the mountains last week. I like the composition with the old tree branch sprawling across the water, so some day I might try and do a bigger painting of it.

Btw I hope that James Gurney video will inspire more people to pick up Gouache, it sure did inspire me.

Alex, a treat to see! I was mesmerized by the fence detail, and, as always, how you use many variations of color, especially in your greens! Well done!

Per, you have been soooo busy! Well done! My favorite is No. 1.. I love purples anyway, and you have used them splendidly, with the perfect complement: green! I enjoyed them all, but No. 1 especially!

Re: Gouache Corner June 2015 - Free for All

I am new to this forum and to painting. I've been experimenting with gouache and have some paintings to post, but I need to resize them. As soon as I do that, I'd love to see what people think. I am now in s beginner watercolor class, but really like this medium also!

Linda, not to fret, we love to help others grow in their art, plus one can make wonderful friends here! (Many of us aren't able to get out much, so we value contacts with our Wet Canvas Friends!)

Just ask, there is always someone here to help! And, a Super Big Welcome!!!!
