Canvas Painting and other Thoughts

I have been doing a few portraits lately on stretched canvas. I use acrylic gouache for these and I find I am now getting comfortable with this medium. They handle a little different than my usual water based gouache and I found I was struggling to get the colors to float. I now have the formula and find I am really enjoying this medium.They have a different look than works done on paper and because they don't require framing-they are very affordable!This one attached to this blog is one I did of a boxer. I really enjoyed painting this one-next time there will be a boston-on the painting table as we speak,bye for now,CarlaPortrait of a Boxer
