i like this watercolor palette so much i decided to use the same kind for my gouache. i'll squeeze out new paint into full pans as i run out, using THIS method. yeah that method. the one i pronounced too much of a pain in my tuchus to ever try again. i'm near empty in a half-dozen or so colors (top palette). this time i'll make sure i use enough gum arabic so i don't have so many crumblies.
i took a gouache break to hastily sketch the contents of my medicine cabinet. i was attempting to draw more than one object at a time. with mixed results. no matter. in a couple of years when i look back at this sketch i won't care that it's askew. only that i documented my medicine cabinet. isn't that what sketching from life is all about? keeping a visual record.
