Consuelo – A miniature painting ( aprox. 4″ x 5″ inches)

I used Gouache paint on watercolor paper. Gouache is an opaque watercolor that can be applied in thick layers to create a graphic aesthetic. As opposed to the usual transparent look of regular watercolors.

I took time to make something with my hands and some gouache paint today. It is always a grounding experience to push color around with a tiny paintbrush. This image has been in my head for a while. I tend to wait to start a piece until I have figured out what the most effective medium is to tell the story, and I don’t always know where the story may end up. The way I see it though is that the most important part is just to start.

This is Queen Nimi, a character I designed for the world that I’ve been developing. I made it using Adobe Illustrator from start to finish. I like how Vector shapes can create a similar effect to Gouache (my preferred paints) clean and bold.
