Bodega Bay

Bodega Bay

Bodega Bay

I used a new paint for me today, gouache paint. Although the paint’s behavior surprises me greatly, I enjoyed using it very much. Compared to watercolor, gouache is heavy and thick. It leaves brush marks that suggest the movement of the wind and water really well.

This was a simple line sketch from our camping trip last week to Bodega Bay. I wanted to show the impact gorgeous vistas like this have on us and so put the figures into the sketch but had them stand motionless, just taking in the view.

This is a gouache, pencil and watercolor pencil sketch on watercolor paper. I used the watercolor pencils to strengthen the edges and outline because I could not figure out how to do it with the gouache.
