365 Days of Art – Day 13


…..more patterns from Creative Bug

This latest pattern that I worked on from Lisa Congdon’s daily videos was the Matisse pattern of fern leaves. The recommendation was to use gauche paints but at the moment I don’t have any here at home. I think I left the ones that I have up at the cottage which is probably not a good thing because they will probably freeze over the winter. In fact, they are probably frozen solid already.

I used watercolours but I can see why she recommends gouache. Watercolours are very translucent where the gouache paints are much more opaque.
