Gouache is a water base paint. It has more pigment in the paint than watercolors. Watercolor is transparent to translucent. Gouache is more about solid areas of color that do not look washed.
FITZ Maurice has created a stunningly new technique in the application of the gouache paint. This is a "Signature Technique", because no other artist is using gouache in the same way.
The artist has won awards and international acclaim for creating a "Signature Technique" in the oil paintings.
In the Oil paintings, the "Signature Technique" is about texture.
In the Gouache paintings, the "Signature Technique" is about line.
The line simultaneously establishes the color, direction, and movement in the painting, all in one stroke. An intense presence is required to paint each line in this way. Rather than that discipline emerging from a mindset, in fact it comes from "surrender", a state of being that is willing to have creation gestate. Decision making, ego and criticism are left behind, allowing divine guidance to lead the way. The artist feels that the creation is ultimately greater than she ever could have imagined.
