Recently I have picked up Gouache and mixing that with a small bit of watercolour. I started using the medium with figural painting, the above is one of the many greyscale figures I did with it. I have to say the minute I used the medium I loved it, it feels like a mix between watercolour and oils. As its way more forgiving than watercolour, and allows alot more control, especially the ability to work with the light shapes and highlights. Also loving the mixture of hard shapes or soft blending you can get with it, looking forward to playing with it more!
