A double portrait

I haven’t painted in gouache in ages and I thought it would be fun to get them out again. I chose a subject from Sktchy of two sisters and painted it at about A5 size. I’m certainly out of practice with gouache (and it shows). But I enjoyed doing it,…

Gabster

A gouache portrait of Gabster from Sktchy. I was exploring using a Matisse-like dark outline, only to realise afterwards that my recollection of his use of line was very much exaggerated! However, I like the end result!

Thornton

A gouache portrait of Thornton from Sktchy. I very much like how this one turned out, and felt I learned a lot about gouache in the process!
