Gouache Barnstormer


I met my parents, and my sister and brother half way today, to celebrate Tyler’s 21 birthday. They bought me a new type of Paints I’ve wanted to try, called gouache. It is an opaque paint that has properties which mirror both watercolors and acrylics, depending on how much water you apply.

For my first gouache painting, which is French, I painted a simple barn.  My Dad and I used to love playing the old Atari game barnstormer, which is why I chose the name. It’s simple, but I was pleased with the effort.
