Spring at the Milk Barn

I am exploring the gouache medium again today, and I'm adding some ink.  I begin with brown and black India ink for those lines.  This heavy paper is very absorbent, so the super fine nib skips a bit on those lines.  I add the gouache in a fluid manner.  I know you can get pretty thick with gouache, but I'm not there yet.  I finish with a fountain pen, brushing those lines gently with a little water to make them spread.  The light is simply beautiful as I finish, I should pull out my oils!  Painting number 1909 in 1909 days.
