Gouache Cityscape by shinkusuarez88 Gouache Cityscape by shinkusuarez88
NYC cityscape done in gouache, the funkiest paints earth. I was really trying to push a "cold" feeling with this one.

AWESOME!!! I love how simplistic, yet complex it seems! I think you nailed the 'cold' feeling with this. It looks like a blizzard in the image.

Wow, this is stunning! I love the looseness of your brushwork, and i really think you've captured a cold mood with the de-saturated colours. Reminds me a little of San Fran the last time I was there ;). Just starting out with gouache myself, hope I can get this good someday ^.^
I was wondering, do you usually do a lose sketch before going into gouache? Or do you just paint it?

This painting came out really fantastic. Good use of the medium and I love the snowy texture. It feels very chilly looking at this picture =D.

The only thing I'm iffy about is the big white ball on the right. It's a bit distracting from the rest of the scene.

You're most welcome ^_^.

Oh it's a lamp? I thought it was falling snow up close.

Lucky with gouache there's a couple of easy fixes you could do.

You could hit up the white with some of the yellow shades you have on the buildings and bus. I personally think this would pull the whole picture together even more since you have the yellow synonymous through the painting except on that side. It would also give a nice "U" shape to lead your eye through this amazing scene you have going on.

Or you could take a damp brush and lift up some of the white till it's not as intense.

Well done man. Gouache is not an easy medium. I see you've taken a bit of water colour approach, but it works for you.

Try some more things with gouache to see what it's capable of. xD

I just started experimenting with the studd. :P

Pretty cool. It reminds me of an aritst by the name of Tom Bennett, he does monotype prints that have this sort of feeling to them.
