Well... not everything was coming up helen... yesterday. Gouache was being very bossy. She was telling me - "Helen, you have to plan... think it through... choose your colors ahead... sketch. Spontaneity doesn't cut the mustard in this case." I was telling her - "Sweety, I have ADD and three children... work with me here:)"
In the end, this portrait of Lola dancing is the only thing I can show.
I'll be at it again. I will make make friends with gouache:)
(Gouache, if you are reading my blog... " I love your smooth buttery texture and how fast you dry. See ya soon:)
