Current painting of a marching band 10x14. I did this in gouache and acrylic paint. I have been painting with gouache for a few years now; I use acrylic paint as a base then use gouache on top to create a smooth look on textured watercolor paper. The second painting was the original I did about three years ago. This painting is much smaller and is acrylic, ink and gouache. I stopped using inks in my paintings because I think the final colors are unpredictable. I do like both paintings, the character designs haven’t changed too much. I do like that older version of that dinosaur and lion.
