Blue Wind - gouache study - on paper - 11" x 14"
This is the study for Blue Wind. I wanted to get the feel for the colors and composition.
Lots of people ask, what is gouache? I like to use it because it's opaque and I can cover up my mistakes! I never mastered transparent watercolor, and the gouache is almost like acrylic. It dries very quickly, and I can complete a small painting in as much as an hour.
When I finish Blue Wind, I'll have Primary Wind: Blue, Red, Yellow.
Can wind have a color? Can anyone paint the wind?
