Study in gouache # 1

Tonight we learnt how to use gouache paint. Gorgeous and creamy but a little scary. Continuing on with botanical motif theme, we were to choose a flower – preferably a real one from from the fake supply, and use one colour to paint and fill in its shape. Then, use the tiniest bit of black to add darker tones and white to add highlights (tinting). The result was a monochromatic gouache tonal rendering of average quality!
