The Park

This mixed-media illustration is part of a series using gouache paints, pencils, & coffee on heavy watercolor. I really enjoy combining different elements and discovering the balance between subjects, materials and composition.

 My art is often equal parts experimentation and research. I go in with the idea of my subject and then play, through a series of sketches and paintings, to find the right way to convey it. In this drawing,  I wanted the heartfelt moment of the subjects to be unconventionally portrayed. The bold green creates an unexpected contrast with the earthy tones of the coffee.
