I have been working on the watercolor over gouache technique for the Oyster Shell series because it allows for more interesting bleeds to surface. But it takes away many of the pattern-like elements I like. So I am performing a balancing act between water & pigment. Enough water & pigment to make the bleeds I love, but not enough to erase the gouache. It is proving an elusive balance, but I will persevere. Happy Thursday Y'all!
