Samuel Beckett Demo

There is a step by step of a gouache demo for my FIT class, working mostly in transparent gouache and building up the layers. Give it a try.

Mike Demo

I kept forgetting to take shots of this one. Sometimes I'm just lost in the paint.

Hopkins Demo

This one went smooth and by the numbers, a compelling photo to work from certainly helped. A value study first and foremost, color in a second consideration, I started with a palette of blues and oranges and built up a thin washes until finishing with opaque paint, trying to keep the lightest touch.

Sarah. Blue to Orange Demo

Here is another gouache demo from my last FIT class, I'm using just blues and oranges. A complimentary palette always works well.

David Bowie Demo

This was a demo for my class at FIT this Monday, I wanted another go at Bowie because his loss weighs heavy with me right now.  Gouache in light layers working to dark and then then opaque layers working back from dark to light.
