Over the last year and a half, I’ve made just a few [understatement] abstracts with ink - and now while I’m still doing that — I’m ALSO exploring in gouache in the same format. Yes — I am completely enamored with tiny abstracts so I wanted to share that with you! Filmed this work-in-process where I draw lines with a geometric/architectural vibe and add color with gouache paint. This is tubed gouache that I’ve let dry in the palette and then rewet when I want to paint [that post has lots of lush details about that]. So I’m using gouache like pan watercolors, to give you a frame of reference, although gouache is generally more opaque and has a bit of a texture to it. I'm letting the paints just flow into each other, not trying to control that. I like the wild results, the happy accidents where colors intersect and mingle.

I filmed a video! Woo hoo!

Ingredients:

+ the imagination
+ vintage Koh-i-Noor Rapidomatic pencil [from my dad]
