Gouache Painting Update: Music Class

August 18, 2010

Here’s an update on the gouache painting shown on the previous posting. Almost done except for the figure on the far right and final cleanup.

You can hopefully see in the detail some of the brush texture I’ve been talking about that this polyester fabric allows me to achieve. There’s a mix of wet flowing paint and dry stippling. The orange shirt shows how I like to lay down the local color and darker shading before adding the brighter values.
