Detail of the gouache strokes on "Coup Coup" - trying to give the impression of "bird" rather than paint the bird - you would never know it looking at this piece but I love pigeons :) .

"Coup Coup" done and ready to be custom framed! A "coup" (pronounced "koo") is a surprising and successful strike, often in battle... and also sounds like the noise a pigeon makes... You all know how much I love wordplay!

Step two on this gouache horse - refine in the shapes and add color variation to show warmth at joints and in the face - challenge yourself to really limit the detail to a few areas where you want to draw focus.

Step one on this falling horse- painting with gouache and my trusty Utrecht flat size 8. It's a good habit to start with a large brush to block in shapes and avoid the temptation to get caught up in detail too quickly.
