Forrest in turquoise

Currently proceeding forward with my 12"x12" gouache "quick" line drawings; I don't really have the broad spectrum of colors I want to use in gouache. A little acrylic gets mixed in, I have to keep the sheen down. As always, so pleased to be an artist alongside of Forrest Anderson! Our studio and practice sessions should coincide more often. Below: four attempts at one desired color. Lightest on the left wins.

Intuitive Henna

My Hand! Also my first valid henna, done by Christalene Karaiskakis, who does beautiful work on multiple levels of body painting. I do love repetition in art, and the skeletal system.
