This was the first actual project I've done with gouache, and it's the first time I've attempted facial features (I usually paint with watercolor and do sillhouette people). I am SO EXCITED about this outcome!

 

I had too much water on my brush when I went to do the blushing, but it adds a bit of *pizzaz* to the piece.

 

I also used thinner gouache as I'm getting used to the medium... I need to train myself to treat it less like watercolor.
