My last post was a watercolor I painted then hadn't posted here. This is a gouache piece I painted a month or so ago at Arlington Garden before the red poppies started blooming. It started off as an overcast day, no sun, no shadows. No red poppies yet. I found this nice arrangement of potted plants and thought they would be fun to try in gouache. Gouache dries faster than watercolor, and with no sun, that was another deciding factor. In my photo you can see a bit of a pretty espalier against the wall that really caught my eye but I didn't have room to include it. The sun came out when we were finishing up so I took a photo to be able to add some shadows later. I'll be back again to paint in this small area of Arlington Garden.
