First time using gouache, struggled a bit with the materials.  Certainly had issues with obtaining a flat, even wash - particularly with the darker colours.  I think it's an issue of student grade paints on cellulose paper possibly?  Had fun making the image but think practice practice practice would certainly improve my results (not to mention higher quality materials).
