Playing with Gouache

Away from the studio, playing with water based materials
and oil pastels.
Trying for outside of my comfort zone.
Love the neutrals above.

5 x 7

I tried to abstract the little red barn from the other day.
Definitely outside of my comfort zone!
But this little detail works for me!
Layers work.


  1. Both of these are so lovely.the first is soft and warm, and the lilac gives a sense of depth. I love the rough strokes in the barn, gives that rustic feel. :)

  2. The abstract is wonderful. Love the shapes and colors. I agree with Sheila - the barn has a rustic texture.

  3. I love the first one, you should make a BIG version ( think I said that before ) , really great colors and shapes !

  4. These are beautiful! I love that you are being brave and going outside of your comfort zone! Your efforts are very successful!
