Daily Drawing

Castle of Leaves - gouache in 8x6 Gamma sktechbook

'Feather' - Pigma pen and Prismacolor pencil in 8x6 Gamma sketchbook

'Pogo' - gouache in 8x6 Gamma sketchbook
I bought a little 5 color mixing set of gouache paints at the Big art store in Denver and have been enjoying the opacity of them, which allows me to build up color in a different way.  Hope your week is going well.


  1. You've bought some great stuff ! Gouache has such vibrant colours ! Always think of trying that too when I've been over at Eva's blog !
    As I see a feather in your daily drawing : have you started on some stones for Jude yet ?

  2. Guoache is such a funny word. I can never spell it without looking it up and seem to mispronounce more often than not! BUT you my dear, make it look thick and rich and bright!

  3. oh yum
    so drawn to your castle of leaves
    lovely shapes and colours

  4. Gouache is so different. I have some but have never been able to 'crack' it. I think it is the matt effect that I struggle with. Also that I am trying to use them as watercolours.

    Your work is inspiring me though. I wonder if there is some way I could use them to 'colour in' my pen drawing.

  5. some wonderful spring flowers and color here, Gouache is something that I would like to try at some stage. Looks so interesting.


I love to hear from you - please leave me a note.
