painted forms

I have been reflecting on the style of painting that I have used for my quilt studies and the connection I observed with the old methods [pre-computers] of painting designs out. The flatness and intensity of gouache paints is providing a different visual language. Because of the nature of gouache, it is also difficult to build up layers and so you would paint in a way more akin to colouring in or a paint-by-numbers technique.

I have explored this further with the exploration of landscape / form applied from a functional, design perspective.
