I frequently take classes to enrich my life. Mike Grecian was a representative of Holbein paints. In one of his color theory classes, we were given an image to recreate with gouache. (That’s like watercolor but more opaque.) I finished one set of oranges in class and completed a second set on my own. The only colors available were cyan, magenta, yellow, white, and black. I am very pleased with how they turned out.

We were supplied with high-quality watercolor paper, a greyscale value image, and a color reference image as well as the gouache and assorted disposables.

I’m proud of these and they currently hang in my kitchen.
