Cougar Peak #89

4.75" x 6.75" Gouache on Manila Folder

For this image today I worked on the ever popular manila folder. I first laid down a fairly tight pencil sketch and then sealed in with an acrylic gloss medium. After the sealer dried I painted over the top of my sketch with red gouache and a tube of blue and yellow watercolor, mixing the three together and using some really dry gouache white that I could hardly squeeze out of the tube.....the manila, gouache, watercolor were everything I had to work with today, so I had to make due, and sometime it can make it all the more fun.
