“Big skies,” 6x6”, gouache and pencil on paper. Framed and available at Mill Street Studio Pop Up in Creemore, ON. 

I guess I’m a little obsessed by dramatic skies lately. It’s been a needed reminder for me that the world is so much bigger than all my little worries. I’m capable of facing challenges in the moment—but leave those challenges to the moment—enjoy the big skies right now. I'm always searching. I have an appreciation and connection of everyday beauty that we sometimes pass by without a thought. Using a limited palette I often find myself getting lost in the subject matter.

This gouache painting is on Arches, hot pressed, 140 lb Watercolour Paper, using M. Graham gouache paints and a pencil. Gouache is an opaque, matte watercolour paint which can be applied thickly like traditional paint or watered down. M. Graham gouache is made using pure honey and gum arabic, just as it was for Dürer and Boucher. It is recommended to have the painting framed under glass.

The paper is 7"x7" and the painting size is 6"x6", with a white border left around the outside. Signed in the bottom right corner.
