Gouache experimentation

I am working on something for Mother's Day that involves gouache. I am not well-versed in watercolor or gouache and would like to get re-acquainted. 

One useful thing I have learned recently is to limit the color palette as much as possible. Stick with three or four primary colors max. Only introduce new colors for important areas - not every corner needs to be meticulously rendered with detail. I added the most intense colors first, and then filled in the in-betweens with more subtle shades.
