This is my first experiment using gouache. I found that certain colours faded during the drying process, and I would definitely say that I felt like I was painting with tempera because of the texture and the quick drying period. My subject matter was an unused back-stage display at my high school. The background is a painting of a tropical scene with islands, and the foreground is my depiction of decorative lanterns hung up in front of the student painting. I liked how I was able to get a lot of information down with this type of paint as an exercise method.
I used large and medium flat brushes.
