Aw, shucks. Thanks for your kind words, James! Gouache can at times get muddy and infuriating-- I don't think if I'm a master yet, but I'll keep trying !! It's definately my favorite medium to try and get better at!

Stunning work, Raine, I've never worked with gouche but I understand it is quite a difficult medium....you are a master! WOW!

Thank you, Uwe!!! Working in gouache for me is therapeutic--I like the matte quality (and the fast drying) quality of gouache, also the way it can be combined with colored pencils, traditional watercolor and acrylic medium. (I play around a lot with acrylic gouache as well--great stuff for glazing.) Thanks for your time and kind words!!

AWE, what a wonderful piece, fantastic color palette, and well it is so good to see there are still some people out there working with gouache, definitely my favorite traditional medium, makes me want to dig out my old gouache colors and and do a traditional piece again.
A really wonderful piece!!!
