The Mixed Media Sketchbooks of Gosia Herba

Gosia Herba mixes gouache, collage, pencils, crayons, and watercolour to create beautiful compositions in her sketchbook. She illustrates people, animals, and objects in an abstract way that gives them a round, puffy presence. The general feeling of her sketchbook is happy and playful, but also mysterious because in a handful of the paintings you can see the characters shedding tears.  She cuts out little shapes and layers it with paints to create something bigger. She likes to use bold, blue shapes that are balanced out with perfectly placed patterns in many of her other works too!
