Kitty in Rainboots - Gouache Illustration

Gouache Practice

I continue to use gouache for my illustrations. I'm still not completely confident, but I have faith that I will find my own rhythm and develop a style with it.

A Beary Cute Libra - Watercolor Illustration

Angora Watercolor Set

I'm just playing around with ideas and supplies I've had for a while, but never really use. This cute bear wears Libra's lucky colors: green, lavender and cream (ochre).

Bunny with Floral Border - Gouache Illustration


Gouache Illustration

This cutie is painted with gouache - I've been practicing this medium in my sketchbook for a while. However, I feel nervous to create finished illustrations with it. To help get over the nervousness and ease myself into it, I water it down because watercolor is my main love.

The flowers are a blend of pigments PV19 and PB29. 😉

Preliminary Inking

I'm not sure what to title this one yet. I'll use gouache to paint the illustration.
