23 Jul 2014 / in Gouache, Landscape

I have painted the Myrtle Beach in watercolor before, but this is my first Myrtle Beach painting in Gouache. I love Myrtle beach, so no wonder I love painting it!

After Chardin. Hare with Powder Flask and Game Bag. Watercolor and Gouache on paper. 17x14. Artist - Tesh Parekh

I admire the works of Chardin. I hope to learn much from Chardin’s still life paintings. I occasionally copy works of old masters as part of my learning and growth as an artist. This is an old tradition which I hope to continue. Besides, I am unlikely to hunt and use my trophies as still […]

This painting was inspired by Thomas Moran! Thomas Moran is one of my favorite artists. I am amazed by his watercolor and gouache paintings. His oil landscapes are simply beautiful!

Beaufort Sunset. Gouache. 20″x16″.  Available. This painting has received honorable mention in Jerry’s Artarama’s Turner contest. I paint in both transparent watercolors and gouache.

Someday I will be able to travel and paint. But, now I am enjoying painting locally. I often paint at Durant nature park in my […]
