I’ve been a bit at loose ends this week, but I did pull out the gouache and make some painting attempts. A couple tubes were dried out (I haven’t used them in…15 years?) but most of the ones I tried were usable. Above is my second attempt, which reminds me a lot of Karel Appel, below.
Gouache is kind of in-between watercolor and acrylic, and I’m going to have to get used to it again. I wanted to pile it on like I used to do with acrylic (and I do want to get back to that, one thing at a time…), but I found out right away that I needed a differe
nt approach. Still, a start, and the results are interesting if nothing else.
