Central Coast

4" X 6" gouache.

Both these and the previous post were done around Lompoc, which is a really nice area for landscape. These are more little experiments in gouache.  It's a medium that often appeals to oil painters, because it can be used in much the same way and is very forgiving especially when painted over gessoed paper (like below).  But used as a thin wash on paper, it behaves pretty  much the same as transparent water color although with less granulation.
