Fox in the Meadow - pass #2
Gouache on 140# watercolor paper
Keeping the brushes larger so I can keep it loose. Don't want to get lost in detail and lose the feeling. Loving the direction this is going.

Pass #3 it may be done
13 x 7 (will get double matted and put in an 18 x 12 frame
Gouache on watercolor paper
Now to give a little art lesson. Gouache pronounced G-wash is an opaque watercolor. Very popular back in the day by illustrators because of its quick drying properties and scannability.

Whooooo's There

Just recently finished this painting. I am fascinated by the hidden color and textures that can be found in light and shadow. I was hoping this would help others see what I see when I look at something.
