Subject title: Painting with Watercolor and Gouache - Week 3

OK Assignment Week 3:

Create 6 Studies from life. This time, again, focus on the simple value statement. This time, we will use a limited palette.
Make those studies an hour maximum one per day should be fine. Here are the pigments you should or could be using:

- white gouache
- yellow ochre
- french ultramarine blue
- permanent sap green
- venetian red/ indian red
- van dyke brown.

so we got a basic color setup with relatively muted color variations of the spectrum. I found using a tape for masking my paper out very helpfull, as you get a nice clear edge and a smaller painting area, so you don't focus too much on detail. Have fun and be awesome, id be really thrilled if you guys go out there and do some real life painting. Its very hard, ill probably do only a few from life but some from photos.

I really didn't have enough time, so I think what I'll do is kind of combine the last assignment with the next one because I actually don't have those pigments in gouache. I only have black and white and the 3 primaries. So it'll be whatever I come up with I suppose.
