Gouache study with a very limited palette. I was taking inspiration from 17th century Dutch Landscape painters and a bit of the Constable/ Isabey storm obession they score their paintings with. I am also combining Chinese White (Holbein), Zinc White, and Titanium Goauche (from M.Graham). The Daler-Rowney Zinc White is super stiff and not so good, but could be interesting for weak glaze mixtures. I also coated the paper with a prepared sizing from W&N. They don't make it any more though.
