12×16″ gouache on board
Something a bit different… missing Puget Sound and the silent fog.
Peacoctopus by Meg Lyman
8×10″ gouache on board
This was a super fun commission, although the finished version had a kitchen background and added an apron onto the critter, as well as those feather dealies sticking out of the head. I truly enjoyed the challenge of the feathers. Their shape is soothing to paint!

… as awesome and confident as this little artist.
5×7″ gouache and ink on paper
CMYK palette again, so much fun!
5×7″ gouache and ink on paper. Used a limited CMYK palette on this one, plus a bit of brown and white.
A few plein air pieces from recently. I’m taking a gouache plein air class in a couple months so I’m practicing. It’s really hard.
Both are limited palette gouache on scrap illustration board. The top one was tinted the day prior. Turns out I’m kind of a slow painter unless it’s a cute squishy animal, and my parts start to go numb before I feel I’m done painting. It’s a great restriction to help practice.
