hi everyone,

I have a new painting to share. I finished her this afternoon while babysitting my niece. I used gouache, Pitt artist pens and colored pencils. I'm so in love with gouache. (pronounced gwash) I just recently discovered it and I can't stop playing in it. It's an opaque watercolor medium. The colors are just amazing. I'm thinking about doing some more shading/highlighting on her and maybe adding a background. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :D
