I did a small painting of a kitten using gouache. This is for a former professor of mine who is a big fan of cats. :)
I find I really like gouache, it's so much forgiving compared to watercolours. I've never worked with oil paints before but I imagine it would be somewhat similar to gouache in terms of the workability and how you can pick up paint from underneath the layer you're working on.
I have acrylic painting class tomorrow, time to attack the paint with some cheap Curry's brushes again. :(
