Dawn said...

excellent work Gary, thanks for visiting my blog and I have added you to my blog roll. Wyoming is one of my favorite states ever. I'll be back!

Tatiana Myers said...

Gary, it is very good painting! Can you tell me, what kind of gouache you are using?

Sheila said...

Wow... Okay.. I'm at a loss for words and that's a good sign for you. So, "wow" again.

Gary Keimig said...

Wow. Thank you everybody.
Tatiana-I am using winsor Newton transparent watercolors[for the most part] but I mix them with Permanent White Gouache. I get the large tubes made by Pebeo and can only find them at Cheap Joe's. I handle the watercolors then like one would do an oil. I even use a poallette knife for mixing. The secret is how much and when to use water. Very frustrating for first time users but as I tell my students I teach that befor they decide it is for or not for them-Do 100 paintings. I use both 300# Hot press Arches or # 1 Illustration Board that I can only find through Dick Blick. It comes in 30"x40" size and can be cut to what ever with a utility knife.
