Gouache And Black Paper

gouache 1

Yesterday I visited a fabulous exhibition by Swansea-based artist, Tim Kelly at Volcano, and browsed through one of his sketchbooks which was made up of black paper. It looks like he used gouache and gel pens (although I may be wrong) and I really liked the effect. I happen to have had a black paper sketchbook, some gouache paints and a rather smart Winsor & Newton water pot knocking around for some years now that I haven’t used. So I had a bit of a play. And I like the way the paint went on the paper, the way it holds the brushstroke, the way the paint looks. I think I could get into some experimentation with this. It’s important to take some time out to experiment with new materials, I think.
