Painting #20 - Daisy In Gouache
As in my usual MO, I started painting this daisy in watercolor on hot press paper and discovered I do not like hot press paper at all. Watercolor just doesn't blend the way I want it to. (The more I learn the fussier I am getting. lol)
Then I decided to try it with gouache on black paper. I have discovered Larry Seiler who does a lot of painting in watercolor and gouache. He recently used gouache on black paper so after the hot press disaster I decided to try gouache on black paper also.
I keep trying new things and this exercise was great for illustrating tones and is really helping me achieve that with watercolor.
