Painting a landscape in gouache is very hard. There are so many variables that you have to deal with all at once that it is very frustrating. I definitely need more experience to do this well.
Within one hour of painting this is what I’ve had to deal with, most all at the same time.
- Chair breaking
- Light changing every 2 minutes
- Subject changing as people come and go
- Water changing
- Severe changes in value to the gouache as it dries
- Hot sun
And yet today was a wonderful day 🙂
