A couple more small gouache works on handmade flax paper in my new Kotare series. These little ones are 10x19cm masked, with a 3.8cm flax border.The one with cupcakes on the left was for a friends birthday today… She got those red velvet cupcakes last night, so felt appropriate to add them into the pic… oh so cute!
Notice how the flax paper on the left is darker? Thats the difference between varnished and non-varnished like the one on the right. I’m going to seal that one too to prevent the gouache cracking an flaking off, but the varnish makes it a bit tricky to photograph at night with all the spotlights in our kitchen.
