Using up gouache paint remaining on the palette by painting the end of a cork – which makes a good print. Bit of fun in a new small sketchbook.
Autumn is such a colourful time, and especially so when some of the summer flowers are still blooming.
Was really caught up in some artwork based on the plants in the autumn garden.
I recently completed a Skillshare class by illustrator Sara Boccaccini Meadows – and this was the result. My painting is in gouache with a touch of ‘Ultramarine Deep’ watercolour to highlight the delphiniums. I have not really used gouache before, but discovered for me that using it is an interesting cross between oil paint and watercolour – you can layer on top of dry paint and also mix the colours together on the paper.
