Gouache painting of tree -- in progress

In progress gouache painting of previously posted illustration. The tone came out a lot darker than what I had expected. I'm excited to see where the painting is going. Sometimes as the artist, we must step back and allow the work to breathe a life of its own.

As I mentioned before, I will be doing a gouache painting demo at SF ZineFest Aug. 22nd and 23rd. I'll be discussing color theory, paint application, and techniques. If anything, check out all the DIY goodies and various artists! Hope to see you there!
