Elva #76 and 77

I'm in experimental mode.  I got the itch to paint with gouache.  I hadn't touched my gouache for over a decade so most of my tubes are hard as rock.  But I was in 'experimental mode' so I made do with a very limited palette:  White, Cad yellow, Payne's grey, and a beautiful blue -- cerulean (?).  Note: no green.

I'm not used to how thick the paint is, but it is fun to be able to paint light over dark.  I just may have to go through my old paint carefully and figure out just what few tubes I need to buy so I have a more complete palette.  I think I'd like doing some of my field sketching with gouache.
