|The Organic Today Farm|
Fall is here and getting into the spirit of visiting the lovely farms on Long Island. This is a cute little family owned organic farm. I was there last week and did a painting of the pumpkin patch. This is an entry into my journal. It is time to bring it home and start sketching in my journal. Happy Painting Everyone.

Gouache study on paper 8x10
|Still life study in gouache|
I became very interested in gouache, in the last few weeks. With all my researching and inquires made to fellow bloggers. I purchased a set of Holbein artist gouache which I received today. It's a challenging medium, like anything that is new, it's takes some time to understand . So it's a process. My first is a quickie done this morning. I wanted to achieve a watercolor look. And that's what so great about this medium, it can be made to look like a watercolor painting or more opaque such as an oil. So hence, my fascination in learning all I can. I also have a Winsor Newton Designer gouache set on it' way. So there you have it, happy painting everyone.
