Day 5- When your Muse has taken a day off-

Day 5- Tulip season (When your Muse has taken a day off)
5 x 7 inches, watercolor and gouache
I am slowly replacing my watercolors with gouache. Each time a tube finishes I buy
the equivalent color in acrylic gouache. I have come to really appreciate the way gouache can have a substantial feel of 'body' but can also be very, deliciously transparent.
Generally I feel ms.Muse has been quiet, but it comforts me to know this usually happens right before she comes up with some new, sudden push forward. Trust
your Muse when she 's quiet...Keep working.
