A folk art-inspired gouache (matte watercolor) painting using bright colors and leaf-like shapes.*
Gouache is a matte and opaque watercolor. Because it has chalk added to the pigment, the paint appears matte.
The piece comes framed and matted:
-Frame is a white 1 1/2 in deep square-edge wood frame.
-Mat is 8-ply (i.e. thick)
-Museum UV glass
-Art: 17w x 27h in
-Mat opening: 19w x 29h in
-Frame outer edges: 29w x 39h in
*NOTE: There is a one tiny red brushstroke of paint near the bottom right corner.
Additionally, there is a small splash of paint near the top right which needs to be covered by a new mat. I can remat it, or you can do this yourself.
Gouache and graphite on a thick paper called Rives BFK.
