New Gouache- The Mushroomer
"The Mushroomer" is about 5.5x5.5 inches like the mountainscape gouache previously posted on this blog, on same type of paper and receiving the same framing treatment as a few others i have sketched out like this, and perhaps a few more landscape studies. I have noticed a lot of mushrooms and fungi themes in visual art lately and it has run parallel with the actual mushroom hunting that we do ourselves for a hobby. It is nice to be able to put those parts of our lives into our work.
|morels from this spring's very good season!|
these are very expensive to purchase if you can
even find them, and a very tasty mushroom :)

i grew these in our kitchen window.
Also I noticed my brushes were starting to lose their form so I finally sprung for two special round brushes for gouache/illustration work today, and picked up new tiny brush for oils. yay new art supplies! >_>
