Yellow Dog Falls...5"x 9" gouache...
5"x 9" gouache on black drawing paper (heavy)
Painted tonight, and you'll see my set up here which
is making my foree into gouache convenient and
enjoyable, (clicking on image brings up larger view)-
I've painted with oils predominantly the past 15 years,
acrylics the 17 years before that...but what makes
gouache nice is the casual setting up...no mess to speak
of, ease to clean up, and no smells. Ordinarily I'd be
painting outdoors with oils or in my art classroom...here
I can spend time with my wife, and enjoy some television
or movie...though I more or less listen and see little by
comparison of my painting, naturally.
The paintbox is one of several Guerrilla plein air boxes
and...if you'd like to see a three second interval gif
animation of this painting start to finish, follow my link to
