Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas
7 x 9 Gouache on Paper

I took some gouache paints with me to California hoping to get a few sketches while out there.
I only managed to do this one (the best laid plans!) I haven't used this medium for years and after  painting with oils it was a little different in technique and took a little getting used to. But I found it to be a fun way to sketch and I like the looseness of it. I plan to do more with this medium. Perfect for traveling - I think I might start carrying them with me in the car. It might be a great way to do a quick plein air without all the set up time.
