Today the weather outside in London is poo poo grey again. So we went a trip to Tahiti with Gauguin to feel better.
We watched a nice video by Grand Palais about Gauguin's adventure in Tahiti followed by a tourism video to see what it really looks like.
Then we attempted to study a watercolour feel painting of the colourful landscape.
1. If use acrylic, make the brush watery and get some tissue to absorb excess liquid to make nice textures.
2. Go through the colour wheel and make it all vivid with only small areas of muted colours
A bit of white
