"If art is therapy, if art is to inspire, if art is a weapon, if it is a medicine to heal soul wounds, if it makes one not feel alone in his or her visions, or if it serves as transportation to a higher self, than that is where I aspire to live everyday."---Rudy Gutierrez

Ink Gouache Off
So I have yet another painting that I just finished touching up that I thought I would post. This was a difficult assignment, but I like the way it turned out. It doesn't look as rendered as some of my stuff so it was different for me to do. Basically for this assignment I painted really thick with gouache and everything I wanted black I would let the board expose through. After I had my painting done I then dumped a huge amount of ink on it and washed it off. The places where the board was exposed turned black and the places I painted real thick left a beautiful stain. So all I had left to do was just a little touch up work. It definitely could be better but I think it went well for my first time trying the technique.
