Artist of the Day- Zoe Pettijohn Schade (click on image to view individually)

Working with gouache seems so tedious to me. The lovely flat, very matt surface is beautiful but difficult to control. Colors have to be mixed ahead as it is nearly impossible (for me) to match the color …as it doesn’t dry the same color as it went down. Arrhgh! These carefully constructed paintings are full of repeating patterns…many of which contain shooters and arrows…a sign of our times!?
