Watercolor & Gouache Workshop

What a fantastic weekend Thomas & I had up the coast in Mendocino. We got a chance to get away from our daily lives of photoshop painting and use real paint for a change.

I worked with gouache a bit, and struggled with watercolor. It was really enlightening learning From Erik Tiemens to take advantage and really explore the combinations of both mediums.

I won't ramble on about how amazing the in-class demos were or the exercises (check them out here on Erik's blog).

Here are studies I did from the class. The first piece Erik helped me out by masterfully adding the finishing touches.
