  • This project was to apply an ink gouache resist technique to a series of four images. My thought was to design an ogre from four different regions of the world.

    • The procedure requires you to paint your colored portions in gouache on illustration board leaving the areas you want black untouched by paint.
    • From there you brush permanent ink across the entire image and let it dry.
    • Then you literally rinse off the ink covering under a faucet, its nerve-racking!
    • The gouache resists the ink and the portions of untouched board are now black.
    • And finally touch ups with more gouache.

    Overall I was pleased with the end result.
