And now back to oil. It's REALLY interesting going back and forth between oil and gouache. One big difference is the drying time. Because oil dries very slowly, one can really play around with edges of things, right on the surface (panel/canvas). But it's the quick drying time with gouache that I really like too - that colors go down and dry almost immediately, which prevents any mud from happening inadvertently. I find I have to be a lot more careful with oil - really planning out my strokes carefully. Whereas I have more freedom with gouache because it layers easily. That said, I am learning that there are limits with gouache too.
