PAINT OUT IN HOLLIS
I went painting again in Hollis with the Breakfast club artists yesterday. I painted the same house 3 weeks in a row. The first week I used gouache and didn't like the results too much. With Gouache you cannot overpaint forever, it is best to use it the way you use watercolor by using the white of the paper. The second week I used Oils and canvas paper. The third week, yesterday I used acrylics with a lot of medium. I ended painting three paintings which I will post when I am completely done with them.
Many artists come to paint every week. It is such a lovely spot in the historic district of Hollis!
