Gouache studies

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.
