My Colorful Character

My Colorful Character - student project

I'm new to gouache, so this class was an excellent introduction to how to work with this medium. I decided to take a different approach to creating a "character" and work from a photo of my youngest grandson, who is generally quite a "character"! I don't usually give titles to my work, but I decided to call this one "High Noon at the Splash Park", a reference to both the location of the photo and the challenge of painting such strong shadows. I learned a lot from this class and this painting project and will definitely be continuing to work with gouache!
