After The Challenge

Playing with Gouache
5x7 study
Bellport Harbor

Trying to get back to my studies.  I chose to paint this in gouache.
Just to re-charge my creative battery.  Looking at this, I will go
back and work on the boat and water.  That's what is so great
about gouache.  It is easy to make corrections.
Happy Painting Everyone.

    1. Thank you my friend. I would like to do more of these seascape paintings. Must learn to paint better boats. I had a difficult time posting on your blog. I might be having problems with google. Will see how it goes tomorrow. All the best to you. Joan

  5. Gouache? What a timely post - I recently discovered an unopened set of Gouache paints that I received as a gift and was thinking it was about time I tried them out. If I could do a fraction as well as you've done here I'd be ecstatic. Great work Joan.
