Underpainting of gouache. Golden Heavy Gel on the canopy area (applied with a palette knife), overlaid with Colourfix primer in clear.
✱ The gel medium dries pretty fast with a fan on it. Sufficiently dry to allow application of the primer. I imagine the gel will continue to 'set up' for a while. It's alive!
✱ Need to be quicker and looser. Still! Also don't need to post every single iteration, do I? Except in the composite. Which looks cool, I admit.
