Precious gifts

I am lucky to have thoughtful friends who bring me souvenirs from their travels. I finally opened this tin of Tuscan olive oil (delicious!) and poured it into this spill-proof glass dispenser from Spain. They made a nice subject to tackle with a new medium – gouache!

I only have a tube of white gouache, so I mixed some watercolour pigment with it to get the colours. (Learned this from Nathan Fowkes book). It’s painted on grey-toned paper. I was inspired to try this after watching and listening to Shari Blaukopf in recent etchr video/podcasts.
