"Lake District, UK - Horse" Winsor&Newton Designers gouache study on Stonehenge paper, 2hrs start-to-finish, from reference shot myself. #JAWCooper #stonehengepaper #winsorandnewton #gouache #paintober

I consider this "half way done." One hour in - one hour to go. Everything is blocked in so now I just need to refine shapes and add detail in a few choice areas. I'm using Stonehenge paper taped to a clear clipboard with artists tape, Winsor&Newton Designers gouache, and for this second phase a Princeton Select Angular Shader brush in 1/4". The photo is my own, taken in the Lake District UK, colors manipulated in Photoshop to my liking and swatches selected digitally, printed on photo paper for accuracy. @winsorandnewton #JAWCooper #gouache #winsorandnewton #process #stonehengepaper

An example of how I start a small gouache study: I took the photo on my most recent trip to the Lake District in England. I color adjusted in Photoshop and then color picked digital swatches and printed on photo paper for accuracy. I won't be tied to the colors or photo but they are a helpful guide. I'm painting on Stonehenge paper taped with artists tape to a clear clipboard and using grey Winsor&Newton Designers gouache to block in shapes to start. I adore my "Mack Tidwell" brushes and highly recommend the pink and the green sets, very affordable. @winsorandnewton @artboytidwell #JAWCooper #winsorandnewton #gouache #process #macktidwell #stonehengepaper
