I've been playing with acrylic gouache and unusual surfaces lately. It started with this old wooden cutting board I found. Then I did this quick study on the spine of an old book from a resale shop. After all of the digital stuff I've been doing it's scary and fun to use real paints and brushes again! I have paintings in progress on the front and back cover of that book and another one on a small framed slate chalk board. The temptation to spend all of my time on them is strong, but deadlines are keeping me away for the time being. I'll post them when they're finished, unless they look bad, then we'll pretend this never happened!
