I’m taking the second Explore Florals by Victoria Johnson and loving it as much as the first class. I This week’s inspiration was folk-art. I explored the theme with gouache, collage, vector and ink floral patterns.

experimenting with gouache

I’ve been playing around with gouache, trying to make it work for me. I think the key is to decide on your colors and pre-mix them. The colors straight from the tube were not working for me. They were too bright didn’t scan very well. Today I mixed my own colors and am happy with the result!
