Trying to plan a bit more, before I start a more finished piece, hopefully to save time. I seem to make so many major changes, partway through a painting… in value, color, composition. This isn’t the easiest medium to make changes, unless I want to draw on top with pastel or colored pencil. The strength of gouache is that mistakes in color, composition or value can’t hide.
I will add a feed tub to the pig’s environment. I’m not sold on the chickens. Is the chicken in the back too big? I think so.
