Gouache practice

I recently bought a set of Holbein acrylic gouache and I'm loving it. This medium is new to me but it's a lot of fun to experiment. I'm still not sure the best way to approach things, but I'm watching videos to see what others are doing. A special shoutout to this new adventure for introducing me to pigment codes and the Munsell color system.

In addition to the box set, I also picked out some pastel colors: mint green, light apricot, pale pink, and pale lavender. It's taking a lot of will power not to splurge on more fun colors until I'm better acquainted what I already have. I've been struggling a lot with my mental health lately, but painting has been a tremendously therapeutic activity in the meantime.
