Indian ink and gouache resist


Another couple of examples of paintings done using the Indian ink and gouache resist technique (see an explanation here).

This blue house was so striking I just had to capture it in my sketch book. I stood across the street and did a very quick pen drawing, adding watercolour later, using my photo for back-up reference.

Standing on the towpath opposite, the Canal House was also recorded in pen, with a rough indication of colours added on the spot.
