I love playing with the way gouache works when it's re-wet. I picked up a lot of the purples from underneath, adding the greens and yellows to give it pizzazz, before finishing with more white. I think the big shadow on the ground pleased me almost as much as the cloud!
Hmmm, now that I'm getting into these larger paintings I guess I should edit the header that says all the paintings are 2.5" x 3.5"! This one is 7" x 5", on Arches 300 lb.cold press.
