Moleskine gouache sketch



Fun with gouache! This is a fairly quick gouache study of Jack Lawrence in my moleskine watercolor sketchbook. This past year I saw some gouache studies that Sean Cheetham had done in his sketchbook and it looked like so much fun, I had to have a go at it as well. I've only messed with gouache a few times but never really played with it too much. I really had fun with this and plan to do a lot more. If you don't know Sean's work, you should check it out, he's an awesome painter!



A shot with my hand to show you the scale . . . this is a fun size, easy to carry around.



Detail . . . I love letting the medium act and react naturally, let it happen . . .



I also did a quick sketch of George . . . this was done with watercolor.

Hi Jason,

Very cool stuff again.
Now I obviously want to reconsider the Gouache+sketchbook combo.

That portrait is great, the composition is really cool too. Good rhythm.
And of course, your George Lucas Kung Fu is not to be proven anymore ;)

Cheers,
Z.

Hi Jason, I'd rather see your traditional paintings then digital work. But that does not mean I do not dislike your style! It's just that little bit more! Tim

Gouache is a very nice medium to work with! If you have a good quality paper to work on, it's a pleasure to work with!

I really love your style and it's amazing how you fit that amount of detail on such a tiny canvas. Do you have very small brushes?
