Here are a couple of cute lil’ houses I painted a couple nights ago in my sketchbook. I’ve been painting a bit more, and my sketchbook is half-full, but I’m having issues with my scanner. I took a photo of this one on my phone, in mediocre lighting and fiddled with it in photoshop. The colors are close, but not exact.
Anyway, that’s definitely a skill to work on. Digitizing analog art.
I’ve had so many funky houses floating around in my head that I need to paint. Far funkier than these. This was a really fun little drawing because I am still learning how to find that ideal consistency with my gouache paint, especially because I prefer painting out of a pan rather than tubes.
I made myself a gouache palette using one of these cool Mijello Watercolor Palettes. I have the desire to do more acrylic painting and someday learn oils, but the convenience and easy clean-up of watercolor, gouache and pastels/crayons just fits my current lifestyle so well.
