In the Jungle
In this painting I combined gouache paints (first layer) with coloured pencils in some places (added to the gouache) and markers (applied on top of the coloured pencils). I am still fascinated by the intensitiy of the colour of the gouache paints, even if you rewet them on your palette. No paint is wasted, and your brushes can be cleaned easily.
I added quite some water to the paints when I did the first layer of gouache. Doing it this way you can get an effect which is similar to watercolour painting.
I also found out that you can get some very interesting kinds of grey when you mix two complementary colours – green and red, depending on the amount of red and green in the mixing.
