Leafy Green, a gouache landscape

Leafy Green        Gouache / archival illustration            9" x 14" 
I do enjoy both gouache and watercolor periodically and while I am still organizing my studio, it's a bit easier to have available. So, here is a gouache painting for you that is all about the overgrown leafy greens of late summer. Things will start turning soon and we'll all be staring at flaming orange and reds.

Pin It

Bonjour ma chère Mary,

Ce petit coin de paradis peint à la gouache apporte une belle émotion. J'aime les hautes herbes qui sont certes envahissantes parfois ! Cependant ce côté sauvage me plaît et lorsque le vent les brasse je trouve cela vivifiant, vrai, la nature à l'état sauvage.
Je trouve que tu as magnifiquement bien créer l'atmosphère et ce travail à la gouache est splendide.

Gros bisous ❁❀❁

Absolutely lovely! I didn't know you were a watercolor fan too. Those littles mauve flowers are just delightful amidts all that blue green.

I've worked with gouache --but I never have a very good result. I should try harder...! You've certainly got a handle on it. This is gorgeous!
