Mats Week 1: Paper

Wohoo! I just turned in my first assignment for the Make Art That Sells Class by Lilla Rogers I'm taking. I had a lot of fun painting in gouache this time! It's been Christmas for me all week working on drawings and sketches for this assignment. I really enjoyed the process of just experimenting. Since I already make cards for a living, this was more of a relaxed, let's-see-what-other-techniques-I-can-try kind of approach. I liked the way the paint layered the color. I think I might use more gouache in my work! What do you think?
