Gouache Experimentation





Work has been S-L-O-W. So slow that I got the chance to clean up my room, dust off the gouache and play a little. I haven't painted in three years so I'm a starting out simple. Mmmm. Love the smell of gouache. (it tastes good too!)

In both cases I started with plain illustration board and no preconcieved ideas. Just laying down the paint and seeing what happened.

EDIT: I just added another one but noticed that he has dangly bits. Oops. They're supposed to be those things that stick out on power transformers. Oh well.
