First gouache – in the back garden

Well, not too bad I suppose. But it has thrown up some immediate problems with my new “gouache” kit. Firstly, as soon as you get white gouache on your brush, it gets into the pans of paint and makes all colours pale and muddy. So this is why Nathan Fowkes (presumeably) has in his kit an old facecloth. I think he needs it to dab on the colour pans from time to time to clean them up. Second problem is that it takes too long to mix up a dark background colour with the small selection of pigments I have selected. So I need to squeeze in some extra colours in my box.
