Make Coffee With Me! (Value Study In Gouache)

in #ntopazlast year (edited)

I spent the entire day doing a little value study in gouache while also learning from masters. It’s always a good idea to get yourself acquainted with whatever you are getting into and since the pool of talent is immeasurable I have no lack of pros from this specific area. Photoshop also helps me big time whenever I feel a little lost in values especially when it is a commissioned piece and I have deadlines to follow.

The strokes and color for the background got a little confusing once or twice because after a few hours into it, I reached a point where all the greys looked same to me and I felt I like I lost my ability to segregate them. After a few mins of break I got back to it and sure enough, I was back in the game!

I throughly enjoyed every single stroke in this and monochrome practice was definItely overdue. Plus to keep it interesting, the coffee color worked out to be just fine! There is a long road ahead of me to master the tiling method in opaque mediums- preferably gouache! Any suggestions/feedbacks are always appreciated ❤️
