Gouache and Pen


Today we’ll use gouache paint water a brush and a black fineliner Gouache is kind of like watercolor paint but it’s opaque and it dries a little faster i’m mixing yellow and blue to create green and i’m adding white for a bit of pastel tint I keep mixing my paint until I am happy with the color and then i use it to draw a pattern of shapes I decide to do pear shapes and I’m not too concerned about the placement of the shapes as long as the white space between them is sort of equally divided the shapes are more like pear-shaped blobs and that’s okay it doesn’t have to be neat or perfect now this has to dry and once the paint has completely dried pick up the fine liner to make these paint blobs into cute pears add a stalk and a leaf and look at how you can make use of the white space filling it with the leaves use hatching lines for some fun texture you can do vertical lines or horizontal lines or combine them maybe you can fill one or more of the leaves with lines but keep it simple! play around try different colors and shapes do and see what you can come up with: apples, pumpkins or maybe something that isn’t edible but that has a recognizable shape that you can use in a pattern like this have fun and if you like to learn more subscribe to our YouTube channel or join us for a class at SketchbookSkool.com
