The Cats McMillan
Co-worker asked me to paint her cats.
Ok, Black Gouache is kinda evil. I will tell you why. Well firstly because of the obvious reason: it's just a strong overpowering color. Secondly Black gouache in particular is very velvety, it appears to have its own special texture. Lay it down too thick and it jumps right out at you. (All the other colors are like, "la la la doobe dooooo," and then you have black and its like BAM VELVET DARK PATCH RIGHT HERE!!!! I STAND OUT YOU SEE ME???!!")
It can be quite a chore to temper it, to try to convince the black that it needs to be as nice and quiet as all the other colors...
