Recent work in gouache

I love working with this medium..perhaps it reminds me of when i was a kid playing with poster paint. I like the powdery texture and the way it sits on paper. I dont know why it never seems to be available in art shops, perhaps because people prefer acrylic, they are after all essentially the same paint however gouache doesn't have the binder and medium that acrylic has which i dont really like on paper and it works better on canvas.

For this current series of work I decided to focus more specifically on the 'jet-setting' aspect of my general interest in sun and beaches. I want to delve more deeply into scenes of 'cool' whici has always been a strange interest I have had..
