This was a study to practice using gouache. Meissonier was known for his detail work so this was a good one to practice with. I drew the image out in pencil then went in with the paint. It was painted over a sessions.

Still a few of these to go but I will start mixing it up with some environments. Have no written much the past few posts. That was down to my keyboard- the space bar stopped working and I was using the on screen keyboard to drop in the spaces. Brand new shiny rig now. Anyway I stuck with this exercise because it forces me to work in lines and figure out details before painting. Something I would not have usually chosen to do but I can see the advantages and it definitely speeds things up.
