New art materials and some experiments
I love playing with new art materials! Recently I've tried Fabriano Watercolor Paper (kinda flimsy, but good for practice work), a new round brush with a pointy tip, and some white gouache.
I've never used gouache before, but I always wanted to. I'm glad I did! I used some white gouache over my dry watercolor flower painting- to add details to the leaves and flowers. I love the effect!
I also love my new brush- the round with a fine tip is much better for lettering than my other blunt tip brushes. It's also excellent for leaves and stems.
And then I threw in this little sketch from my camping trip. This was painted in the tent because it was too rainy out. I'm glad I brought my paints to keep me occupied :)
