I wanted to do a post about my getting back into traditional painting with gouache and watercolor. I loved using watercolor in college, and before that acrylic and oil in high school. But when I got my Wacom Cintiq I jumped into digital painting, and while that's all well and good, there's something very soothing and fun about traditional paints.
With traditional paints there are happy accidents and of course, no command/ctrl Z, there is no Undo button. But this I think helps us grow as artists and designers so that we can try and work through a mistake and creatively problem solve. This can also turn into a happy accident, getting you out of your comfort zone and developing a liking for a style you never thought you would like or knew you could do.
The paintings and commissions I'll be showing were done with this Winsor & Newton primary 6 color set and you can click through to Amazon to view details or purchase (Winsor & Newton did not provide me with paints, I'm just showing my supplies):
