Gouache Portrait Study

ARTIST: Jordan Rhodes, United States

ARTIST STATEMENT: For my gouache studies I like to go with a layering approach, working from dilute to more opaque as I build up layers. The dilute layers allow me to experiment with different color combinations, which can be easily covered or further incorporated into the piece.

MEDIA: Gouache, graphite
SURFACE: Delta Series – Extra-heavyweight – 270 gsm – Ivory – Cold Press Surface

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Jordan Rhodes is a recent Ph. D. graduate in chemistry. He rediscovered his love for art during grad school as a way to relax away from the lab. Now he plans to pursue art more seriously and continue to improve.
