Two Squash, Two Styles

Which do you like better? I’m sure enjoying this medium. I need some new colors. I don’t have a good red yet. The study on top was done with just 2 colors. A great exercise for me. And excellent way to use this medium that is so valuable in stressing flatness. Achieving dimension with value is my goal. I’m learning.

I was blown away watching Stuart Shils doing a monoprint. It’s worth watching if you have some time. I’d love to have the gouache be as sticky as that ink appears and able to be pushed around like that.
