Zigzag Geranium

15x13
Watercolor and gouache

Zigzag Geranium by Char Fitzpatrick

Gouache is an opaque substance with the consistency of toothpaste. It is water-based and acts like a very high grade poster paint. In this painting I struggled mightily to get the feel of the geraniums, one of my favorite flowers, and failed. Out of desperation I blocked out most of the under image until only the glowing pot and geranium head were visible. It has a magnetically mysterious effect I never planned on.
