Dot is a curious feline who digs in places I would not go. I pawclaim this because Dot pawsented today’s artist to Jerry Underfoot & myself & we wanted to make that pawsitively clear to you. Hi, CEO Olivia here. I won’t nibble words, I pawsonally find these goucache paintings wooftastically painted but they are somewhat dogsturbing. The technique used, gouache, is created by using water-medium paint consisting of natural pigment, water, a binding agent, & sometimes additional inert material . Gouache is opaque where as watercolors allow us to see what is underneath the paint; gouache does not. Gouache has a pawtacular history having been around for the at least 12 centuries.
Enough yipping about paint let’s get on to yapping about the wagnificent American illustrator & artist Bill Mayer. Bill Mayer not only works in a variety of media & combinations of media, gouache, oil, airbrush, scratchboard, pen & ink & digital, he also uses a variety of pawtastic artistic styles.
Let’s stop yapping & start looking at what Dot dug up for us.
Remember to be gnawsome, be kind & stay safe.
CEO Olivia, with Dot & Jerry Underfoot 🐾💜🐾
