Gouache has been my Kryptonite.
I couldn't get a handle on it, and couldn't understand
why anyone would or could, after having some very unhappy attempts with the medium.
I must try again.
So in a real "What Have I Got To Lose" attitude,
I got out some scraps of handmade recycled paper I made with the first graders, and let loose.
|each scrap roughly 5" x 7"|
"Why the handmade paper instead of something smooth?"
you might ask? "Something normal?"
|obviously, (or maybe not so) from online photo refs|
I have no idea.
|and in this case, from a selfie.|
