I had such a good time working on a portrait from the live model yesterday that I started one from a photograph today.
Painting in gouache goes much slower than in oils. Well, at least for me it is. If I was more correct with the swatches of color that I’m laying down then I would have less corrections and it would go much faster. Painting in gouache is forcing me to try and get the value and color correct the first time I put it down.
