thankyou for your comments Ewe. It really is quite a buzz getting a positive crit from such an accomplished and established artist.
Regarding gouache vs the computer, I have done some work in art packages, and been pleased with the results.The use of 'undo' is a real plus. However, painting in the real world does have its pluses. perhaps the thing I like is the excitement of having to do things 'just right' - first time. It is also quicker.

Mr. Reed your Troll paintings are just marvelous. And knowing there are still some people out there painting with Gouache makes me feel nostalgic, Gouache was my favorite medium, now it had to make place for the computer, not that I don’t like to paint on the Computer, I really love it, but somehow I miss the good old days with Gouache…. Oh well, back to YOUR art, I had a look at all your works you uploaded here and I really, really enjoyed looking at them. Thanks for posting… Hope there will be more soon Smile
