gouache mushroom


Although the original photograph of the artwork was taken under glass and it gives a slight 'misty' look to the image it is still understandable. This images shows the painting at just about life size.

The mushrooms is from life and was drawn onto the Saunders Hot Pressed paper using a 2B pencil, the pencil lines were removed with a 'magic rub' eraser after the painting was complete.

Thin washes of various Gouache colours were used for the under painting of the ground area. All these colours were 'dropped in' while the Gouache was still wet, further layers were added to give a rough/stone-y look to the ground. Various stones and debris were picked-out using darker paint.

The mushroom themselves were painted with thicker paint to give them 'substance' and contrast.
Tip: add a few drops of Gum Arabic to your mixing water if you wish to paint in layers.
