A wide variety of studies, mostly explorations in gouache and life sketches. I really enjoy working with gouache but definitely have A LOT to learn about it, as you can see these are all very uneven in color which has to do with the water to paint ratio, and general paint quality. These are the basic Reeves set which is one of the cheaper ones out there. Fun to experiment with for sure. These studies are a fun way to take a break from larger, more difficult projects I'm working on but still encourage growth.
Another practice I've been incorporating into my sketchbook is timing it, grant it, I don't always remember to do this but when I do, it's very beneficial. As you can see from the last two plant still lifes- the timing improved drastically. Now, the hour long pothos drawing is a bit more complicated but it's still interesting.
