The last environment in gouache to wrap up the challenge! I learned a lot from this piece, but the most important thing is this.
I don’t like cold press paper for gouache. I work my gouache opaque and want a stroke to lay down paint wherever I run my brush across. Since cold press has a variety of bumps and valleys, there was always spots where gouache didn’t get deposited, which meant I had to go back and reapply it, which is bad in gouache.
I think I’ll keep the cold press only for use in watercolors.
and now time to run away from environments for the rest of my life
