Two things happened: I needed a break from my zombie art, and I recently bought a fresh peach.
So I plonked the fruit down on my table, put a light on it, and got out my gouache. For those of you that aren’t familiar with gouache, it is an opaque watercolor. It comes out thick from the tube but can be watered down. Pros and cons: it can be re-worked when water added. That means a mistake can be fixed (carefully) but putting a layer over another can be tricky as the paint can lift up.
I’m still learning.
This is a 5″x7″ painting on 6″x9″ 140lb watercolor paper. It is available in my Etsy store; to purchase it click here.
