Soft Toys using Gouache paints

Around the end of May we did about three weeks working with gouache paints. These are known as poster paints and can be described as watercolour with body. They are opaque and have a soft chalky finish. They are particularly good for graphic work are highly controllable when used without too much water.

I asked people to bring in a soft toy as this seemed like a good subject to work from.

I like this project because it makes you look at these soft toys in a different way and it brings in something personal in an unusual way.
