Even when you’re really busy I think it’s very important to make work just for yourself. Here’s a piece I did a few weeks ago just for fun. She was originally going to have a stripy dress but it wasn’t working out, so I used a bit of painty paper I had lying around to make her a fun summer dress. When I use gouache the colour on the palette always looks very different to the colour once it’s dried on paper, so I always test colour first, which means lots of painty test strips everywhere! I love their random quality and the way the colours progress harmoniously.
