it's been so long since i last used my gouache paints! i used them just about every day during my freshman and sophomore year of college and i really haven't reached for them since. i love how bright the colors are and that the paint can be either opaque or a bit more watery like watercolors.
i'm hoping to get into the habit of painting a little bit every week. i spend so much of my day working on my laptop; eventually i need to take a break from staring at a screen. however, it literally takes me 10 seconds after i shut my laptop for me to pick up my phone and open instagram. it's a horrible habit, but i can't be the only one! painting will definitely be a much-welcomed way to reduce some screen time during the week.
