Oils & Gouache: Pattern and Patience

My favorite mediums are oils and gouache. The vibrancy of the colors, the scent of the oils, the way they flow across the paper and board. My collection of goauche on bristol represents an obsession with the use of patterns and repetitions inspired by the works of William Morris as well as the miniature paintings of the Mughal empire.
