For reasons only interesting to me, I tried raw sienna rather than yellow ochre for this one.
I returned to gouache for this one and found I like the paint properties much better than casein. I seem to be able to manage the issue of reactivation if I let each layer dry thoroughly and save white mixtures for the very last.
A view of Firwood Lake. This is the first painting in what should turn into a series of paintings of Laurelhurst Park.
