Sketchbook post

I’ve been trying to commit to working in one sketchbook instead of having lots of tiny sketches floating around. Very happy that this paper accepts gouache without much buckling.

The other day I upgraded my gouache and can’t believe the vibrancy of the colours! For a comparison, the hand studies were done in Reeves gouache and the little pansy painting was with Winsor and Newton Designer gouache. Hopefully the W+N lasts a long time because they were darn expensive

Lesson learned: pretty colours do not hide bad anatomy. More hand practice needed
