For this piece, I used gouache paint on watercolor paper. The main focus of the work is suppose to be the lights and dark. For this purpose, I used “cool” colors such as different shades of blue. I used orange, yellow, and purple for “warmer” and lighter colors. This is actually the first still life painting I have created and it took me a week. I actually first drew this with just pencil shading but I thought that the piece would be better if it was painted.
