Gouache study 't Weegje



Pin It
I did this gouache painting in 2005, haven't painted much in gouache since then but after some recent posts by Nathan Fowkes I decided to give it another try.




It's tricky to control the wetness of the paint and to try not to lift the previous layer. I need more practice but for a first try after so long I think it's not too bad.

I totally admire your work. Coloring is so intimidating for me. You do such a great work here.

Hi Art Fan Ako, nothing to be afraid of. The worst thing that can happen is a bad painting. Just enjoy the process :)

Thank you Lauren! I think I will do more of these studies, they're so much fun.
