Variation on a theme, new medium

September 05, 2011




I've been wanting to try gouache for some time, and recently bought a set of gouache paints. To familiarize myself with it a bit, a I made a small painting on clayboard that's a variation of theme from my last raven watercolor. I think I like gouache; the flatness of it. Anyway, this little 6 x 6 inch gouache on board is available in the STORE.

  1. Diane, thank you for answering my earlier question. Just wanted to say I love your new painting. It's sweet, but there is something spooky about it, and that makes it so much more interesting.
