In art school we were required to use gouache for all of our color and design assignments for the first two years. I have avoided it like the bus seat next to the dude with the juicy cough ever since. Instagram videos made me wonder if I had misjudged. I hadn’t, but my feelings have definitely warmed. Perhaps with more practice, we can be friends.
I haven’t been to an open studio draw night in almost a year- I’m so rusty! Enjoyed playing with my travel Van Gogh watercolor set, surprisingly rich colors.
I’ve done a million versions of this photo of my beautiful friend Bethanne Hill (who is an amazing painter btw) this one, this one I like, Strength in Adversity.
