Sunflower Using Gouache
I am no expert when it come to watercolor or gouache paint, but that is actually the whole point of this blog. I share what works for me as I go through my art journey, and I hope you can learn from my successes and failures. For this piece, I think its a success! I recently picked up this Reeve's Gouache set, and you get 24 colors for pretty inexpensive. I figured it was worth experimenting. Gouache is a thicker watercolor, and here I put a little dab of paint on my palette and then added just a tiny bit of water. I just layered the colors slowly, and loved how it turned out!
The lettering was done with a Sharpie Stained brush pen, and then I used the gouache to do the outlines. I am definitely going to experiment some more with this paint.
