African village

This is done with the gouache and ink technique I've used before. The technique's rather unpredictable nature reminds me a bit of etching where you never quite know how the picture's going to look until you make the first print. In this case you don't know till you wash off the ink just where traces of ink will remain or how much the colors will fade. Of course you can make edits in Photoshop but it's the very lack of control that makes it fun.
