Trunk of a beech tree – gouache sketch

tree trunk, beech, gouache underpainting

Coming back to the place I had begun my last forest diary study in drizzling rain I found that an important part of my subject had been harvested. Somehow I regret that not much of the first steps was left in the final stage of this study, even though a bit of sun was a nice experience after the grey days. I made a mental note about the beautiful, marbled colour nuances that lots of water and rain drops can create with gouache. Working wet in wet with gouache is a thrilling thing and I want to explore it further in future.
