Rose and Gouache


I’m keeping up with the painting. It's a thing. Having discovered Holbein GOUACHE thanks to my dear friend and designer colleague @Cocoskies I am now obsessed.

Holbein Gouache is a cool-person Japanese paint with rich dense colours and a lush matte finish. Not commonly available in the UK, I’ve acquired the ones from work to have a razz with.  Here is my Friday night Holbein Gouache floral showpiece (I don’t seem to be able to paint any other subject)

The colours are so chalky and thick it’s really pleasing to use, and it reacts like watercolour so it’s easy to manipulate.  I thought I’d stick it on a can to make a chintzy AF rose wine whilst I’m at it. 

Happy Saturday!
