I started this series as a way to learn to use Gouache a little more, having had basically 0 experience with it, and also use color better. I realized my color sense is still… a little rough heh.
I also wanted each piece to represent something i had learned in the past year or so. a way to keep track and to look back on 🧡
As I was working on this, and later exercises on bigger sizes, my lightbulb went off (on?). I realized that this exercise was not actually about trying to use gouache in a specific technique that was ‘legitimate’ and ‘good’. Moreso, finding the groove, approach, the space, where i felt freer to explore within the medium. Instead of forcing myself into it
Here’s my faves from this series:
Thanks for reading! I’m not sure that i’ll make posts like this often (mostly will use my wordpress as my portfolio), but posting here over social media feels right at this moment
