Medieval Man in a Red Cap-002
Today I sketched a colored painting of the same subject I sketched yesterday. I'm finding that I'm liking painting with gouache more and more as I do it more. It is giving me that extra contrast that I find hard to get when I paint with transparent watercolors. I want to start painting bolder and thicker so I feel I have a long ways to go yet. This was done on a block of 140 lb cold press watercolor paper. It took about 20 minutes to paint. I did a loose prelim sketch in graphite pencil before I started painting, but those lines soon got lost under the paint.
