gouache studies

 Craw Dad Nest 4x7 ish 

Wet Rocks 4x7 ish 

Snow Day 4x7 ish
Now that I know that comments are working or sort of working, I will start leaving some notes to share with everyone. These are little gouache studies that are meant to just keep the juices going and possibly move into larger paintings. Which ones do you think would look good in a larger size and what size? Craw Dad Nest looks like it would be fun as a 30x40 or so. Something about microcosm painted macro size is fun. Once saw a tree frog painted 4'x5' that made me smile and a painted turtles head, head only, about 30x40 that was pretty cute. Not necessarily great art but fun images.
