Earlier this year I decided to go on a whim and take a class that taught plein air painting, mainly using gouache as a medium. Truth be told, I had never used it before, except for one time - and that was an absolute disaster. But over the semester, as I got accustomed to the paint, brushes, wind and all the things you don't have to deal with inside your house at your desk, I found I really loved it. So these are the a few of the pieces that I did that I think are my most successful. I hope to do many more of these over 2020 as I learned a lot from these, almost more than any other painting class.
