Gouache Landscapes

Untitled, 8×10, gouache

It’s been a while since I last did any serious gouache landscape painting, so I decided to paint a place we’ve passed many times over the years. This old farm is on Hwy 36 near Centerburg, Ohio.

The Crossing, 8×10, gouache

Water and rocks were always a challenge, so I decided to try this scene from Mayfield Park in Austin, Texas.

It felt good to have a brush in my hand again, although I did find myself struggling with color mixes a bit after not painting for a while.

    Ralph, I really like both of these pieces. It is so amazing to see how you beautifully capture both still and moving water with gouache. Lovely work! Thanks for sharing these new paintings.
