I’m going to try and do one very small (7cm x 7cm) gouache landscape painting each day for 100 days. The idea is to keep the process under 15 minutes or so, but i know it’ll be tempting to extend. Today’s entry is from a photo I took in Half Moon Bay, CA sometime in 2011 or 2012.
I’ve been wanting to experiment with painting landscapes for a long time now, and i finally bit the bullet and picked a photo from our anniversary trip to Iceland in 2010 to paint from and present to my lovely bride for an anniversary gift.
Painting with gouache is really different than acrylic in a number of ways. I had a blast making this painting and learned quite a bit along the way. I’m going to start another one of these soon.
