|Study Gouache After Carl Hagg|
Trying something different.
James Gurney has been running a series of articles on his blog about gouache. As part of that series he launched a competition to paint a gas station using black and white gouache. I bought the paint but missed that deadline. I haven't used gouache before or watercolour so I thought I might study first before trying something more challenging.

|Servant and Master|
When I started trying to practice more seriously resources to help were numerous - folks had started livesteaming, Conceptart.org was a buzzing place. Seemed like there were lots of people learning together. Over the past few years it has got a lot more fractured and harder to get that constant nag to work and get better. There are still lots of resources - free and to pay for but it feels like you have to pick your was through things to find whats useful at the right time.
Someone who was active getting better backwhen I started and has reappeared streaming is John Silva- you can catch him streaming on twitch.
I was listening to his stream when I started noodling with this. He gave some advice to someone he was critiquing - keep your values close. That was what I tried to do here. Thanks John.
