In my recent video on my visual diary I experimented with some paint. Paint has always been my least favourite medium in art because it's messy and I've always just found it difficult.
This year in art, well I'm forced to learn how to use oil paints and some watercolours and it's got me intrested in them. I received these pastel gouache paints (^^) for christmas and thought I should use them properly. Gouache is like a very thick water colour paint, which is a nice difference from watercolour and normal acrylic.
I love how rustic you can be with watercolours and it doesn't have to be perfect and neat, and if you muck up the blending - it looks how it is meant to look! I'm not the best painter really.
I really recommend getting some cheap watercolours and giving them ago because they are easy and you can't muck it up.
hope this might get you inspired to start painting, it's great fun
