All paintings were done in gouache as ususal. I really came to love the student quality gouache box by Caran d'Ache that I used for almost all of them. I also really came to love the paintbrush I used (a Talens Van Gogh filament watercolour brush). After a year there's no way you can not become very familiar with a material if you use it every day.
The further I came along in my paintings the more I preferred to just paint patterns. Sometimes the patterns were very straight (I used a ruler to set up the pattern in pencil then) and sometimes I just did them fully by hand. I am a control freak so I prefer the very straight and uptight ones, haha, but I do see how the more loosely done ones have a bit more character.
I hope you enjoyed this peek into my morning paintings and I wish you all a wonderful and artsy day.
