Reeves gouache colors on 90lb Fabriano paper

The second work in the series of flower paintings using gouache colors.


flower, foral, gouache, still life

Buy it, I’m already well into my 60’s and if I’m going to be famous, well, I’m running out of time. I like to think my work has been influenced by the great impressionists, although my wife says it’s because I won’t go and get my eyes checked. At any rate, I do love to paint watercolour and acrylics and it’s a true wish of mine that you enjoy viewing my work. Go ahead and let me know what you think, I love to read your comments. (Well….the good ones anyway.)

  • Kj, I had an instructor who told descripted like this. Gouache paints are the crossover between acrylics and watercolours. Then he laughted and said the truth is it’s for people who want to do watercolours, but like to paint with acrylics. Thanks bud.

    Lovely painting Jim…I like how the flowers fill the entire space…they look like Cosmos…are they?

  • That they are Janis. Almost 10 years ago Barb and I brought a package of wild flower seeds to help fill in a area around a swing we had just put up. 80% of the package was Cosmos. They continued to come back and in odd places around the yard for another eight years. Never had another flower do that. Thanks Janis – good eye.

    then I need to look into gouache colors

  • I don’t use them too often, that’s why I just have them in student colors. Reeves is a brand that offers a good inexpensive set.
