So I tried to leave a comment before, but I don't think it published. If it did, I appologize for commenting twice!

This is a great character. Love it! I love the colors you used on the face and hair. Your work is fabulous. It was fun meeting you at the UVSC conference. Later!

Hey Guy!

What is the brand of gouache you use? If I remember right, you mentioned just opening up jars of paint to do quickies, but I can't find any "jarred" gouaches.

Your sketch paintings are superb!

Garth- I use acrylics in a jar. My gouache is Winsor Newton in the tube. It usually dries up, but you just add a bit of water and you're ready to go.
