Linda Blondheim Art Studio Landscapes Of The South

5x7 inches
gouache on panel

Today's gouache experiment was interesting but I believe it is definitely a paper medium, at least for me. I struggled with this, getting any kind of contrast and values. It is very very soft on masonite so I had to overcompensate on dark values. I could not get crisp lights at all. Most everything was a midvalue range.

It does varnish nicely and looks better after varnishing. I'll have to experiment some more.

On paper it works beautifully.
