Like the first time I used acrylics, my first time with gouache for a painting was much more difficult than I thought it would be. It is easy to make transparent and the colors are pure and clean. However it's not as transparent as regular watercolors, making using them trickier for me at this point. So far I haven't figured out when to make them transparent and when to make them opaque. I spent this afternoon by an old abandoned farm. Instead of zeroing in on one aspect of it, I tried to paint the whole panorama. I learned from it but it's certainly not a beautiful journal entry.
