Art Journal - August 2022

August was a pretty good month, artistically. I took a bit of a break from the ink & watercolour I've been doing for a while, and got back into painting with gouache. It took a little time to get reacquainted, but I managed to get a handful of nice pages throughout the month.

I also moved away from painting items or objects from my day-to-day life, and painted a few pages from reference images online. This was a nice change to paint something a little different than my usual view of the beach, and I was especially happy with how colourful and cute these two little critters turned out:

I feel like I'll be painting with gouache for a while yet :)
