I spent today playing around with some different painting techniques. These were fun and simple to do and I want to play around with it some more. I started all these with a light grey underpainting in gouache. Then I applied colored pencil only to the shadow areas to give them some color and richness, followed by transparent layers of gouache on top. I added more colored pencil and/or gouache until I was happy with the contrasts between light and dark. I really tried to focus on working fast and not overworking the brush strokes.
