Gouache Birds

Well, ever since the reinstatement of the Flatlanders BBQ (click it click it click it), I’ve been dipping into the gouache like nobody’s business. It feels strange though, I have to say, to pick up a paint I used to LOVE about 3 or 4 years ago and haven’t used since.

I can’t say our relationship hasn’t changed, that would be naive, we’re both different people (or y’know, inanimate art supplies) now. Life has taken us down different paths only to have us find each other again. And I have to believe it was for a reason…

Recognize two of these birds?? (I don't mean from bird watching)

Anyhow, fate aside, to get back into gouache and also for an excuse to paint some birds, I painted some birds. For some of them I used some really simple sketches and a few notes on colour that I had made at the Zoo a little while back. So they’re kind of half made up, which is something I don’t do enough. Good old gouache.
