Half Moon Bay (tiny landscape #1)

Half Moon Bay, CA. 7cm x 7cm, gouache on paper.

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.

Iceland painting

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.

Gouache on primed wood. 15×9 inches

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.
