Mushrooms

This is using The Langton spiral 140lb cold press I absolutely love for painting cameos.

On the left is color play using gouache pigments and bottom right is using watercolors. 

In this situation it would be like comparing apples to oranges because my goals for each were different. 

The gouache cameo was strictly color play wet in wet with various colors filling in the mushrooms.  The watercolor cameo is where I was using transparent pigments trying to form my subject maintaining the whites. 

For a true comparison, I would think I'd have to use opaque watercolors with the goal of color play as I did with the gouache.
