I love painting with gouache
























I have taken the advice I received in CTN and I am creating more colour references, and getting off the computer is an amazing thing! After completing some paintings at the beach earlier this year, it made a huge impact on how I treat colour and atmosphere, the only thing is I can not do this every weekend. One solution, I could quit my job and become a beach bum, But instead i came back to reality &  I can complete one of these gouache studies per night.
I hope to stretch some canvas's soon and get the oils out, all in good time.

Thanks Hannah! After so many weeks on working on an kingdom design, strictly value & line studies, it was great to break free!

Amazing work Tegan! After your comment on my blog I too was curious what you had been upto since CTN, and wow, you haven't been sitting still! Very inspiring to see these works in qouache, it defenitely inspires to get away from my computer and get painting outdoors aswell!

Looking forward to your next post!

Thanks Edwin! I'm trying to put all CTN advice into practice! More and more environment references, which is already making a huge difference already, so hopefully when I come to create folio worthy pieces the answers should be there.
Love seeing your progress, I have just started a CGMA course with Armand Serrano so I can't wait to learn from the master myself! Keep up the awesome work yourself!

Argh, then you were the one that snatched away that last CGMA spot on Armand's class! :D I too wanted to take that class, but tried to enroll about 1 day too late! Bums me out even more that I miss out on studying together with you! *sigh*

I'll probably take his summerclass now; keeping my fingers crossed I can combine it with my unpredictable freelance schedule. Ofcourse there's always CTN, will you be attending again this year? I'm defenitely hoping to make it, as it was one of the highlights for me last year.

Have fun at Armands class, looking forward seeing the results here on your blog!

Yeah I signed up to the CGMA emails for when it was going to be released and booked a day before general public, and bummer you just missed out. Chris Deboda who was also in line with us at CTN is in too. I'll be sure to post some of the work as I go, one class down and already noticing my approach changing.
I hope to make it to CTN this year, about to start an Etsy store to hopefully help fund the trip, that pacific ocean costs a fair bit to cross! hahah
