In the spirit of livening up the thread, I thought I'd post something I did a while back. I've learned quite a bit by trial & error since I painted this, but I'd still like critiques.

I found myself impatient with the gouache and painting over wet areas, which made the brushstrokes stick out like sore thumbs (see the sky). I thought patience would help, but even after it dried, painting over left streaks.

I think it's a matter of me finding a good balance of water and paint and learning how different mixes of the two react. Any other suggestions for improvement?

Thanks,
Meg

Nice one Meg. I'm agree with you on the difficulty of finding the right consistency for gouache, particularly for larger areas of one colour.
