"If art is therapy, if art is to inspire, if art is a weapon, if it is a medicine to heal soul wounds, if it makes one not feel alone in his or her visions, or if it serves as transportation to a higher self, than that is where I aspire to live everyday."---Rudy Gutierrez

So here is yet another Gouache painting. As I'm sure you can tell some of it is digital. This was my first gouache painting ever and I got a little to opaque in the shawl and it created some nasty textures so I decided to work it out digitally. Still doesn't look quite right, but there isn't really much more I can do. I was listening to a lot of Death Metal around the time I came up with the concept. I attempted to make it look not so dark due to the school I attend by applying a triatic color scheme to it. I can't wait to play more with the concept in the future. So until then enjoy.
