I really think that painting with gouache has taught me something about oils.  This little 7"x 5" oil painting is done an a Raymar canvas board.  What did I learn?  Slow down...use a variety of brushes....follow the contour with the stroke....work with value....simplify and keep important detail....there are probably more, but these were a few of the things I was aware of while painting.

Thank you Linda. I have so enjoyed watching your journey. Great information, no matter how often we hear it. Slow down, use a variety of brushes. I am renewed. Lovely painting, lovely palette.
