Artist's description:

I love the effect that other artists achieve with gouache, so decided that I would like to give it a go myself. This is my first attempt. I wanted to paint something that featured bright colours and different textures and decided that a prawn salad would fit the bill admirably. It's a bit of an odd size, so I had to cut an inner mount to fit the painting inside a larger mount, but I think it looks okay. I wanted to frame the painting, to keep the gouache safe from any moisture. (The great thing about gouache is also it's major drawback - the paint can always be reactivated with water.) It's a fairly cheap and cheerful frame, more a protection than anything else, so you may wish to reframe the work. If so, make sure that you do it well away from any liquids.
