Gouache Study

Recent gouache figure study from life with an added base of warm light grey and red earth tones. Transparent washes here and there. Thick opaque white gouache added in the brighter areas.  I used a small bristle flat brush which is well worn for textural effects.

Gouache & Watercolor on hot pressed Fabriano/Artistico paper. 9" x 12" - image is slightly cropped.

I look forward to meeting everyone who signed up for the upcoming Intro to Watercolor & Gouache Painting Workshop at the Gnomon school in Hollywood, CA - March 1,  2014! There is still room for more folks to join!
