|5" x 7" Gouache|
Wednesday, June 15, 2016
We had an overcast day for our paint-out last Saturday. The San Gabriel Mission Playhouse was on the schedule. I posted about the last two times I painted there in Playhouse Festivities. That previous visit was also a drizzly day and I painted a gouache piece of the fountain. On this visit, to stay out of the sprinkles we all sat under an arcade area with a view of the plaza and front of the playhouse. The fountain is surrounded by a pretty, tiled planter with roses and other flowers. With this gouache piece I tried to have the planter and flowers as a foreground for the trees and neighboring buildings. I've signed up for a gouache workshop this coming weekend so it will be exciting to see a different way of working with this medium.
