My name's Alexandra and I'm an English teacher. When I was younger I used to draw a lot. Now during the covid-19 lockdown I returned to my passion, the art. I was exploring different mediums and styles and I've found out watercolors and gouache as the most appealing to me. Both mediums are water based so they can be combined. I like the watercolors because they are transparent and I use them for more abstract paintings. While for more realistic paintings I use gouache since the color is more opaque. I use aquarelle paper, and sometimes I experiment on canvas.
