Took plenty of reference shots too for later works. Also of the house from the road with the zoom lens. Looks haunted. I need to do some perspective studies on the drafting table of the dormer. All those vanishing points on those things can be overwhelming freehand.</p><hr /><div><img src="/admin/../resources/img/blog_img/4204/primmbn.jpg" width="500" height="691" alt="" />&nbsp;</div></div><div style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; color: #1d2129; font-size: 12px;"><div data-ft="{&quot;tn&quot;:&quot;H&quot;}" style="font-family: inherit;"><div style="margin-top: 10px; font-family: inherit;"><div data-ft="{&quot;tn&quot;:&quot;E&quot;}" style="font-family: inherit;"><a href="https://www.facebook.com/COusleyStudio/photos/a.318501068194413.84891.318495304861656/1518254624885712/?type=3" rel="theater" ajaxify="/COusleyStudio/photos/a.318501068194413.84891.318495304861656/1518254624885712/?type=3&amp;size=1256%2C1736&amp;fbid=1518254624885712&amp;player_origin=pages" data-ploi="https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/18489525_1518254624885712_9122346803095727527_o.jpg?oh=015d80dcc88256cb48d573f7e584f657&amp;oe=59C099FE" data-render-location="homepage_stream" data-ft="{&quot;tn&quot;:&quot;E&quot;}" style="color: #365899; cursor: pointer; box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.0470588) 0px 1px 1px; display: block; position: relative; font-family: inherit; width: 450px;"></a></div></div></div></div> Mon, 15 May 2017 14:06:35 CDT Rainy April "Watercolors and Gouache" <span style="color: #1d2129; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: #ffffff;">A very rainy and cloudy April in Middle Tennessee this year. My last day of April sketch. I like to do a quick pencil for memory assistance in my truck if I see something I like and then paint later at home. (gouache on 8x11 sheet) The first day of May is nice and sunny here by the way.</span><br /><div><img src="/admin/../resources/img/blog_img/4204/rainy_april.jpg" width="500" height="650" alt="" /></div><hr /><div>&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;<span style="color: #3b3b3b; font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; background-color: #ffffff;">&nbsp;These daisies were in a field near my home. I picked a few for Diane and painted this watercolor/gouache from my pencil drawing.</span></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><img src="/admin/../resources/img/blog_img/4204/img658.jpg" width="300" height="396" alt="" />&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><img src="/admin/../resources/img/blog_img/4204/april_showerssmall.jpg" width="500" height="642" alt="" />&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.chrisousley.com/art/april-showers-gouache/" title="Buy Here With PayPal" style="color: #3366ff;">Buy Here With PayPal</a>&nbsp;</div><div><hr /></div><div><span style="color: #3b3b3b; font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; background-color: #ffffff;">&nbsp;Some wet in wet watercolor based on memories cruising around the local countryside on some early spring days after a rain storm. (I had to add a couple figures.) French ultramarine being grainy, tends to pool up in the textured watercolor paper. This Turner Brand is REALLY grainy! I used the spray mister and let the water do it's work with the watercolors.</span></div><div><img src="/admin/../resources/img/blog_img/4204/misty_fieldsmall.jpg" width="500" height="366" alt="" />&nbsp;</div><div><a target="_blank" href="http://www.chrisousley.com/art/spring-mist/" title="Buy Here with PayPal" style="color: #3366ff;">Buy Here with PayPal</a></div><div>&nbsp;</div> Mon, 01 May 2017 11:27:36 CDT Some Dog and Cat Portraits <div>A few dog and cat portraits I have painted lately.

Used the spray mister some for some soft effects. Jerry's Artarama sells them in the Nashville area. I like them as well as Windsor Newton brand as they perform quite well. Tell Amanda and Adam that Chris Ousley sent you.</div><div>&nbsp;Oh yea, my New Year's resolution is to draw and paint more.

(gouache 5x7) Like I said I looked at the last super moon through the trees while walking Lucky last month. It was cold. Just made up the lake from remembering Radnor Lake. May have to take Lucky there someday. She would like it and the people. Not the other dogs..</span></div><div><span style="color: #1d2129; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: #ffffff;"><img src="/admin/../resources/img/blog_img/4204/another_moon2.jpg" width="400" height="560" alt="" /></span></div><div>Available here, <a href="http://www.chrisousley.com/art/super-moon-phase/" target="_blank" title="Buy Me with PapPal">Buy Me with PapPal</a>&nbsp;</div><hr /><div>&nbsp;They look pretty cool in black and white too.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><img src="/admin/../resources/img/blog_img/4204/moonsbw.jpg" width="300" height="849" alt="" /></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Adios&nbsp;</div><span style="border-top-left-radius: 2px;
