Art: Japanese river scene

26 Dec

I tested acrylic gouache. They are similar to regular gouache except that they dry much quicker and once they’re dry they can’t mix anymore. It’s both an advantage and a challenge! An advantage because you can layer other colours without any smearing. A challenge because the error margin is much narrower: if you don’t get it right the first time your mistake has to be worked around.

This is a river scene with two persons using long poles to maneuver a boat each, and passing next to patches of grass where trees like willows are growing. It must be the start of autumn because the trees are bare but there is still grass. A few huts are visible on the horizon. The sky is home for a big orange setting sun, and grey and orange clouds. Framed in black, 10×15 cm (4×6 in.) [and since then sent to my friend Isabelle fir whom I painted it.]

This took me a long time to complete: 5 or 6 hours over two days. And it’s rather small as I drew it on my little Canson artbook (10,2 x 15,2 cm – 4 x 6 in)

Apparently this month is the celebration of Black history so this is timely.
