"Piping Plover" (gouache on paper; 7" x 7") sold


During the winter term at the Art League School in Alexandria, VA, I taught a new class called "Experiments in Watercolor". I introduced the students to various mediums, such as dip pen, brush pen, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayon, oil pastel, colored pencils, and gouache, to enrich watercolor. Being relatively new to gouache myself, I practically taught myself how to paint in this opaque watercolor. When I pulled off "Piping Plover" one evening, I knew I finally figured out this tricky medium!
