Walk on the Wild Side

I painted this one already, a while back, in oil. You can see the difference for yourself. One thing I really like about gouache is that it looks more graphic in the end. Did I already say I really enjoy switching back and forth between oil and gouache? Because I do.

Quick story: When my son, Jacob, was about 3, I guess we had been listening to the song "Walk on the Wild Side." My husband took him to a store and Jacob literally walked right up to a lady and asked her if she wanted to "take a walk on the wild side," with him. Fortunately she thought it was really funny. Oh I don't want to think of the trouble if he'd been a little older...
