Red Rose Gouache

Watercolor Effects.

A watercolorish painting, yet dark.

This is gouache like the previous one but different. I don't have a scene-pic belonging to this one, unfortunately.

I do find, making a background be dark, yet 'colorful' is easier in gouache. But it's harder to make reds be bright.

Thin gouache on a light colored or white surface will deliver the brightest variation of a red. So you'll need to calculate this in from the start, just like in watercolor. Whereas with oils you can add a bright red at any time in the painting process.

After this one, I decided to start painting the (red) flowers in oils again. Posted next.
