This was my second time working with gouache which, if you don't know, is like working with watercolor and acrylic in one. We were asked to choose 3 objects to capture a range of values in and I chose a vintage Brownie Hawkeye Camera and 2 pencils that my grandfather owned. Those items have to be at least 50 years old at this point. The ink bottle is only a decade old and something a friend gave me. Nonetheless, this piece speaks to the world that once existed, one that knew little of technology.
