So we have had house guests for the past couple of weeks and it has seriously cut into my painting time… it seems I am just not one of those artists who is very comfortable painting in front of other people. So while I can’t show you any new finished works, I can show you the pieces I am working on at the mo – I have a few on the go at once, Gouache being one of those mediums where you have to let each layer and colour fully dry before you add more, unless you are going for a blurred, mix paint effect.
In progress I have my next two orchid pics – I was so enthused after the show, I can’t wait to finish these! They are also Gouache on 300gsm Saunders hot-press watercolour paper, as you can see the brown one is in its very early stages still and a wee bit hard to make out… give it a couple of weeks and I should be able to post up the finished result.
Oh, and there are a few other wee things in the mix too… but you’ll have to wait and see for those till after the weekend – I don’t wanna ruin the surprise!
