The full view is larger than the original. Another peek at the same project as below. The photograph is slightly distorted. The same request as before, please: kindly do not spirit this away. Or I shall be obliged to set the hornets on you. =P

Gouache O_O
dont that kind of paint give a weird texture on paper?

Wow the details *o* I like this one bettter thought. They're both really impressive but I think this one capture details and simplicity in a perfect balanced way. (emm, if that makes sense )

Mmm, golden goodness. That does it. I will no longer listen to the elitist watercolorists who dismiss gouache as a lesser medium.

There are such people? I can understand wanting to use them separately, but it never occurred to me that some watercolourists thought gouache an inferior medium; it wasn't so historically. That's as silly as regarding watercolours as inferior to oils, say. :D

I love your patterns... You do them so well! I did have a question about that, though. When you use the guache, do you need to put down some sort of primer first? (I'm going to be painting small chicken eggs for a show, and I'd really like to be able to get some lovely gold details on them). Thank you!
Reply
:iconhimmapaan:
Himmapaan Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you!

For this, as it was on paper, no primer is necessary. :) Though it might perhaps help if you're painting an egg. I would also suggest you spray over the entire piece once it's done with several layers of a hobby matte lacquer to protect it. :D

:iconcarlotta4th:
Carlotta4th Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011   Traditional Artist
That's good advice. I knew you had to use a lacquer on gilding, so it makes sense that gold guache would need the same thing. Anyway, thank you!

Himmapaan Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
You wouldn't need it if you were painting on paper. ^_^ But I suggested it because if the egg is going to be handled, it would be best if the paint is protected, as gouache is a fragile medium. It's likely to come away onto sweaty palms in this instance, which wouldn't ordinarily be a concern on a two dimensional surface which won't be touched. :)

Oh, wow. Your detail only keeps getting tighter. You've made leaps and bounds in your silhouetted style, and it's been incredible to watch you go. :)
Can't wait to see what this goes in *fingers crossed for something that makes it to the US*

Thank you! Though in actual fact, I don't think there's much difference in capaciy for detail from hitherto (far though I am from wanting to refute any observation of improvement in my work! :giggle:). Just that here, I had plenty of opportunity to load internal costume detail and colour into the silhouettes, whereas with the pieces from Myths and Legends of Russia, for instance, they were silhouettes in a 'stricter' sense, with just outer shapes and almost no colour at all. If anything, the outer silhouette of this one is much more stylised and simplified than the Russian ones to allow for lots of detailed colour ornamentation.

And this one is a children's novelty book, like Night Before Christmas (but not the same format), and will be widely available. :)

*Looks back through your work* Okay, I cede this point. The apparent increase in complexity is entirely in the clothing. There are a lot more figures and action in the Russian folklore pieces than in the work in this style, that I've seen. :) I enjoy both. (Also, it sounds like we are writing a thesis!)

Extremely happy to hear that. :D

So gorgeous! The gold phoenixes are lovely, as is the pattern at the hem. It makes me wish that people still dressed like this (and that I could be one of them). :)

I'm getting increasingly excited about this book! :D Will it be widely available? Or one of those special 1000-copy runs?
