Gouache

on paper
The medium is frustrating to the max, the color shift upon drying is hard to get used to. But the rich color and velvety, matt texture, water solubility and rewetting capability...nice.

Return of Oil Painting Season?!


OH I HOPE SO

I had only been painting with watercolors since last fall, deciding that the smells and mess of oil paints belonged either (1) outdoors, or (2) in a room where food wasn't also being prepared and eaten. While I do enjoy painting in any medium, and I've certainly enjoyed my Monday "Watercolor Dabblings" with the ladies, it felt SO GOOD to get out the oil paints on Sunday and really spread the color. 

COME ON SPRING. COME ON WARMTH.

COME ON HOME RENOVATION.
