Kelly - Painting 14
...this is the first time I ever used gouache. Wow! It's fun. I knew nothing about it except it was opaque watercolor. It's very relaxing to build color up slowly, and it's completely different than transparent watercolor. I quickly learned to work from dark to light. Not reserving the white of the paper felt weird, but I had fun with it. I don't think I've ever had so much texture in a painting. It's very easy to get lost in the detail...and very relaxing too. The background, however, is pure watercolor...
