L'Air du Temps

8"X8" Gouache on coverstock

I still have lots of London sketches but I thought I would take a break from posting them today.

I have resigned myself to the fact that I will never be a "real" artist because I am incapable of maintaining even a semblance of a consistent style. Just when I start to get comfortable with a technique or medium my butterfly brain flutters off and alights on something new.

While I was in England I bought a sample box of W & N gouache primaries. I haven't used gouache for years and they were on sale. I had great fun playing with them this weekend. I used pale grey cover-stock that I bought years ago for some purpose long forgotten. The light on my bedroom wall where the dying sun was shining through the bottle of Nina Ricci, L'Air du Temps was quite irrisistible.
