Walking the Beach in Gouache

Additional play with gouache as I learn how the pigment behaves on paper and mixing together wet in wet. Definitely different than watercolor in the way it moves. I find I'm having to nudge the pigment as it wants to settle rather than spread.

Done in my Hand-book sketch book. Will have to test on regular watercolor paper to see the difference.

You are doing well with this medium Susan. Seems like it takes more effort to use it in a transparent way than regular wc though.

I fell into a rut or slump where my painting is concerned and needed a change. I'm hoping by playing with this medium that it will remind me or reinforce what I absolutely love about watercolor. I'm having fun experimenting and it's got me back into picking up the brush again. :-D
