trying gouache

near Feuerbach, DE, originally uploaded by Rob Carey2.

March 20, 2011. A truly beautiful day in southern Germany today. My daughter was in France, playing with her orchestra group in a church there, while my son was with a friend. So that left my wife and the dog and I to tromp through the countryside a little and enjoy God's great wonders. I finally pulled out a gouache set that I bought a couple years ago and decided to try it out. I sketched (painted) this just outside of the little village of Feuerbach, not far from where we used to live.

Beautiful airy view, Rob! Spectacular shadows, done with great sensitivity and tenderness.

Fantastic Rob, Love the "tegenlicht" (I don't even know the English word, light coming in front of you)
