Love Nature Painting in Gouache

Well here we are on the first day of Autumn and it's a beautiful warm sunny day.
Blue skies above with fluffy white clouds to complete the picture.
If this is how autumn is to carry on...then I'm all in favour.
Goodbye Summer... sadly you were a huge disappointment. 
If you had an end of term report it would probably read..."Must do better"

Remarkably, this week I actually managed to have a play with my new Turner gouache paints.
I certainly learnt quite a lot using them.

For instance, when I use watercolour paints I seem to use them as gouache paint, but when I'm using gouache paint... I use them as I would watercolours.
Does that make sense or is it gobbledeegook?!!?!

Basically, I don't think I use either particularly well.
I much prefer drawing in ink!

I'm completely aware that I seem to be neglecting my blog in favour of the quick and easy Instagram, but hopefully life will settle down soon and I'll be able to spend more time visiting and writing posts.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thanks for your visit today.
It's always great to see you.
