Yesterday I managed to get to I've been Framed Art Supply to pick up more gouache and today I painted in the 'art corner' I've got set up in the front room. The snow storm/ice storm is motivating lots of us to stay close-to-home. I painted this mostly from imagination.
I've Been Framed is very close to one of my favorite lunch spots, Diane's. I took this photo out the window. As I sat there examining the sign-painter's work ...I recognized that gouache and poster paint are very similar. Opaque!
Here's part of my painting/drawing station. It is a perfect place to spend some time on a winter day together with my pencils, my paints, zee cats... and a cup of hot chocolate. I'm not tempted to paint on the windows......or am I?
