I did a quick little painting to see whether only using the more expensive Winsor and Newton gouache paints would result in stronger colors than mixing them with my cheaper ones. I think it did. The top image is how it looked just after washing off the ink. The second is after removing more ink in Photoshop. I thought maybe the top one had more character and the second one had lost some vibrancy so I increased the Brightness and Contrast to get to the third one.Which do you like best?


  1. At first I thought the middle one, but I kind of like the effect the darker areas have in the first one. It gives it a bit of texture. Overall, nice image! :)
