I have spent my life infatuated with the skill, science, and sorcery of #drawing. I am an #art school graduate, studied drawing a few old democratic art institutions and groups. I began my career as a graphic designer. I've practiced street photography, computer programming and prefer to play Go over Chess (pretty bad at both). I live off a small pond with my library card-carrying partner in crime, travel companion, and wife.

Putting together notes on gouache painting using a series of skull studies to serve as examples. Focusing on practices that I have not seen covered in painting with gouache (like don't ruin your brushes to mix paints). Will share sometime in the next week. #mastoart
Finding good resources on gouache painting and only gouache painting is difficult. It is often mentioned as a compliment to watercolour. That does this versatile medium injustice and misinforms artists.
Painting with gouache in every way it offers has been a rewarding joy to learn. By itself or as part of a mixed-media tool set, I don't understand how it has become an occasional side kick to watercolour
Last week I reacquainted myself with dip pen nibs. Last night I started this postcard for a Game of Thrones fan to send ahead of the final season premier.
