Loading Dock (Gouache 4/6) $60


Another version of the loading dock or shipping dock, whatever it's called. This is in gouache on Cresent illustration board. I saw Shane White's gouaches on his site and it inspired me to pick them back up. He has some excellent gouache paintings of Thailand. Email me the title if you want to buy it.

Rock on with the gouache Chris. I love the opaque too.. but little time anymore. I love the old illustrators' use of gouache - such mastery! The ability to layer with out lifting - and smooth thin surfaces. You really did justice to this scene!

Killa Chris. This one has all the temperatures in all the right places. I give you credit for working in gouache, I never had the patience. Great painting!

WK. Those old time cats you got to study. It's required! Coby Whitmore, John Whitcomb and Harry Anderson to name a few.

Thanks Cooper. Gouache is fast. I will probably do an oil of this one for the upcoming show I mentioned in a previous post. Got a few other possibilities in my sketchbook.

\\Chris... that's a nice piece... like Cooper says you have all the right temps in the right places!!! Been a while since I have used guaches, but you have done a great job pulling this one off!!
