City Hall -Gouache Study

City Hall -Gouache Study
 Another gouache study from a photo.  Did something architectural.  The photo is of San Francisco city hall after the 1906 earthquake.
 Looks like they rebuilt keeping some of the major features.

Portrait study 28


Portrait study 28


Some more practice.  Did these a while ago.  The reference was from pixellovely.  I did them just before the site went down -  a result  of an attack.  Glad to see site is back up.  I think these were from a 2 hour class.

Study Gouache After Carl Hagg

Study Gouache After Carl Hagg 


Trying something different.  
James Gurney has been running a series of articles on his blog about gouache. As part of that series he launched a competition to paint a gas station using black and white gouache.  I bought the paint but missed that deadline.  I haven't used gouache before or watercolour so I thought I might study first before trying something more challenging.
