Sigsbee Beach 2, 5 x 7 gouache ,Day 4 of 30 in 30 painting challenge
gouache on fabriano rough 5 x 7 This one is another in the series for a trip to Long Island. My first experiments using gouache (opaque watercolor) It acts like watercolor on wet paper but dries with a mat finish. The colors don't saturate the way watercolor does but I can build up layers over dry paint. This one is un touched after the original session. This and all of the "north" paintings from the 30 in 30 series were not done during the month of Sept. but the "no rules" state that it's ok to paint in advance of the actual days , just don't use old paintings. I painted this series with this challenge in mind.
