Gauche is a great medium. It’s flexible. You can approach it like watercolor or acrylic. Unlike acrylic, it’s possible to go back into it later with water and rework areas. For this, I did the underpainting like a watercolor and then added thick paints to draw in lines. Unusual for my work, but I liked the effect

This study is from an obscure book series Marvel put out with photos of characters instead of artwork. It’s obscure for a reason; it looked very low budget. But the Wolverine model was pretty good.
