Photosynthesized. Gouache on Bristol. © Liz Darling  2010.

Just a little gouache painting. Right now it is hanging next to my sink and the water splatters have changed the surface of the piece.

Space Within Space. Gouache on Arches Paper. © Liz Darling  2010.

With this piece, I enjoyed working with gouache in a watercolor-esque way. Gouache is a versatile medium in that it can be approached tediously or loosely, made to be transparent or opaque. I wanted the value differences in this to really play with the viewer’s perception of shallow and deep space.
