Observational paintings no.4 by axl99 Observational paintings no.4 by axl99
Ok... ONE MORE... ONE MORE WATERED DOWN GOUACHE PAINTING! Ahem.

This one was at the Finch station subway. I had some blue paint left over and used that here. It was tricky figuring out where the light was supposed to come from since it was reflecting everywhere. But even more so when it was rush hour. I had just put on a wash of colour where I needed darks and midtones when all those people came in from the buses and trains.

As a result I ended up shooting that and winging the rest at home.

As for why I'm bothering to use such a messy medium to begin with.... It's pretty good practice for me :D. The results are a little more unpredictable but you get so much more range of colour and tone, that and I hate having to sharpen my col-erase pencils and popping open a dried up grey marker LOL.
