I still love gouache.


I was going through my paintings from last year.... I really miss the "analog painting", what with all our fancified "digi painting" skillz we are acquiring. I kinda hate becoming so dependent on Cmd-Z [yes, that's right, I said COMMAND not CONTROL!!].... 'sides, there's not many more relaxing things to do than put on some good tunes and paint an eve away.

Oh sweet summer evenings....come hither. I shalt paint til my heart's delight.....

Or at least for a good couple hours, deadline-free.
And really, that's all I'm asking for.


Anyway, this is a layout from Lilo & Stitch. A GREAT 2D film, absolutely boo-tiful; they seemed to return to more of a watercolour-ish style in that film, reminiscent of earlier classics like Pinocchio and the like.

Yeah, the colours in this one just seem to sing. Me loves it. [Kudos to the original artist, wowza.] I was just happy to be able to replicate it in any sort of pleasurable fashion.

Me enjoy it.
So in conclusion....me loves gouache.

Your paintings are amazing Stace, you definitely have a talent in traditional painting. I look forward to having that blank canvas that sits in my house filled with one of your amazing creations this summer.
