Fun with Gouache

Fun times with gouache considering I just started using this medium over mid summer. I feel that I have past that point of being seriously frustrated with how gouache behaves. By no means do I feel that I have mastered this medium, but it has become enjoyable to use.

The first one is painted from the car studio in Golden Gate Park. Second Painting is of my son when he was 10 months old. Experimenting with painting on tan Reeves BFK paper.

Sunday's Drawing Marathon

It's that time again for a another drawing marathon put on by the Bay Area Model Guild. The first half of the marathon I painted the models in the long pose of three hours. It turns out I got a little over zealous and should have concentrated on one of the models to paint as you can see I ran out of time. Those poor neglected hands and feet.

Round 2, or the second half of the marathon. I decided to get some drawing in with good old charcoal. Overall a pleasant day of drawing and painting the human form.

Foggy Coast

Sunday's foggy coast painting at the Point Lobos lookout in SF. I feel I have been spoiled over the last week painting outdoors with sunny and warm temperatures in SF. The sun and blue sky never really emerged on this day, however it was nice to paint with a few friends and have lunch afterward.
