Gouache Kitchen by AikoTakada Gouache Kitchen by AikoTakada
Still life assignment... in my second least-favorite medium, gouache (the first being airbrush).

I have no idea why putting in a cheese grater didn't seem like a death wish at first... so I completely blew off painting it properly and left it mushy in the background. I'll just say I had a sudden urge to be an impressionist.

For all its sloppiness and my inability with gouache, I'm still kinda proud of that teapot... the mortar and pestle are meh.

I do do love that teapot. Great metallic lights and shadows in this.... I was struggling with my first gouache in class today and looking for some inspiration. Thanks for putting gouache in the title!
The grater is awesome too, in my opinion.. the way you've trimmed it down to dark spot light spot describes the shape fluently in its own way...
Thankyou!

Aw thanks!
Gouache is a bitch at first to work with, but after a while you get the hang of it...

Wow, Mara...that's not even fair. Haha! Really though, that's sooo good especially considering that fickle medium! Mmm highlights.
