2 New Gouaches, meditating and sailing...

I have been working with ink and gouache to produce smaller illustrations in more vivid colors. My first study is an octopus located here.

I am currently working on formulating gouaches into a commissionable illustration service along with my regular pieces which include watercolor and ink illustrations, and also for art like the regular commissions I offer. It will take some time to see how these finish and hold up, (and maybe how my first non-practice-y pieces are received!) but this is very much a fun paint.
