Painting Succulents with Gouache Series

This series of succulents was inspired by a class I took with Barbara Roth at the San Clemente Art Supply last summer. I wanted to do a few studies to refresh my memory on how to paint succulents. To mix it up I painted with gouache instead of watercolors which has less opacity and almost an acrylic feel. I love the earthy green of the subjects in this series and will be finishing the third one soon.
