While having to ask my wife, a renowned watercolor artist, what Gouache was, and she explained it, it even makes this piece have more beauty and meaning to us unskilled artists! I saw as she pointed out the translucency of the watercolor as a contrast to the gouache, which was a true learning experience. Your work with both mediums has turned this old farmer, with his unique looks into a masterpiece of beautiful artwork. I am amazed at the beauty behind this and the description that accompanied this awesome painting. Thanks much for sharing, Kathy! Love it! fave and vote

Thanks for sharing the gouache story with all, Randy! Adding white to make pastel colors really expands the variety of colors available to artists too!
