oliver vernon 04 Oliver Vernon

Oliver Vernon’s paintings are eye-gasmic. I want to highlight his technique.  It’s called Gouache, pronounced ‘gwash’, and it’s a really stellar.  It’s similar to watercolors, however, there is usually less water to paint ratio when mixing in the water with the colors which allows for larger paint particles in the mixture.  There is usually white chalk present in Gouache works as well.  The thing that is really cool about using this technique is that the darker colors usually dry lighter, and the lighter colors will dry darker.  Frustrating if you can’t harness this factor, but Oliver Vernon clearly has, and uses it in a fantastic illusionary way. As you can see in most of his work, he incorporates sharp patterns of very dark and very light colors side by side.  It’s challenging and he does it so well.

    I’d be inclined to give carte blanche with you on this. Which is not something I typically do! I enjoy reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!

    Oh boy! It’s like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the content home a bit, but other than that, this is helpful blog. A outstanding read. I’ll certainly return again.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
