Hiles Deer Trail...gouache 6"x 8"

















Revisited a scene I plein air painted at last
day of deer gun season a couple years back,
and thought it would be fun to work it up with
gouache and see what I might learn...

6"x 8" image on 8"x 10" 300# black drawing

Kathi, it'll bring you to where I have shared several steps of this painting in a forum at Wetcanvas.com I also have a few other threads showing steps in that same forum.

Yeah, I agree Dad, there's something about the look of these gouache paintings? They've got a great LOOK to them, really nice!

thanks jason...
they seem to imbue a natural inclination to looseness or painterliness that I've been working on for years now to develop in my oils.

Each success with the gouache is like a pay attention moment for me to consider how it would translate to oils. Only time will tell..
