To cut down on redundancy, I decided to consolidate and relocate entirely to my website, margaretmlin.com, so this Blogspot blog is now archived.  Thanks for visiting me here, and feel free to stop by my website :)

I wanted to do something with lots of colors.  I did other versions of this a handful of years ago (posted 8 October 2012 and 25 October 2011).

I created this for my website, margaretmlin.com, which I'm in the process of building.  Sure makes me miss our small grey cat, though.

2016-06-15 landscape

15 June 2016 - based on view of Kelly Point Park, Portland, Oregon
8" x 10", gouache on Arches Oil Paper (since I'd purchased this as part of my now on-hold water miscible oil experiment, I thought I'd try it with gouache.  Seemed to work out.)
With the gouache paintings, I'm scaling back down to 8" x 10" and 11" x 14" due to paint consumption and ease-of-framing considerations.  And storage space.

2016-06-14 landscape (another for June Virtual Paintout)

14 June 2016 - Silverado Trail S, St Helena, California (2)
11" x 14", gouache on unstretched canvas
 Here's another for Bill Guffey's June Virtual Paintout.  I think I'll stick with gouache paints for now and shelf the water miscible oils.  I find gouache easier to work with than the oils, but more persnickety compared to acrylics.  Over all I'm finding that they do what I want them to.
