Gouache

I have been working a lot in gouache with a small portable cigar box setup.

Gouache is opaque watercolor.  I started using it because there are many places I want to paint on-location where I cannot bring my oils.

Since I have spent so much time at my daughter’s dance studio waiting, I started painting there.  I also love taking my sketchbook to the museums… you have to be careful with any water-media at the Met though it isn’t allowed. Actually be careful with anything at the Met because their policy of what gets in is haphazard and inconsistent.  One day it’s ok the next it isn’t.

The Museum of Natural History is very friendly to painters! They don’t care at all!
