So happy to be back in the class room, here is my first demo on the season. Gouache built up in transparent layers, in the final stages I am using thicker opaque gouache, fat over lean goes the saying.
I always prefer to do a colour sketch before I start a painting, It lets the art director know in advance what to expect from the finished painting, it also helps me figure out the direction so I'm not second guessing myself all the way through.
These color sketches really help before starting a final painting. When you consider how many different ways one could take a black and white sketch, it's good to let the art director know what you are thinking.
