Creating a bold design with gouache: Bird & Bumblebee

Creating a bold design with gouache: Bird & Bumblebee - student project

Here's a first and shy attempt at creating a bold design using gouache. I did this painting at night and originally intended for the background to be a deep forest green, however, I reached for the wrong tube and used black in my mix which made it much darker than what I would have wanted. 

I'll definitely try this again but trying to improve colours and composition next time! 

Thanks to Kate for a great class :)
