Illustration Friday: Flying

Wonderdog went flying through the air! A new portfolio piece I finished recently, painted with regular acrylics and acrylic gouache, which I've taken quite a liking to.

This is the 2nd piece that I've used the acrylic gouache on, and while it took some getting used to, I like the matte finish and the smoothness of the pigment as I paint. Not gummy like acrylics. The color is also the same wet and dry! The brands I used were Holbein and Turner. The Holbein seemed to be of a slightly higher quality, but Turner has a larger color range.

Will definitely be doing some more with it. Happy Friday!
