As much as I love alla prima painting, there is a richness and depth that can be had with working and reworking over a painting. This one is an example of that. I did a lot of glazing, scraping and over painting.
It's not finished, I've been working on it off and on for a few months.
Just South of Downtown Phoenix in the old warehouse district. A little gouache study.
I may have mentioned before, I have a love hate relationship with gouache. I enjoy it's opacity and the unexpected accidents that happen. And I love the matte satin finish. It can be a little tricky though because it changes value so much as it dries.
