Liza in 1859 Plantation Dress in Gouache

I signed up for four more classes at the Nevada Museum of Art costume open studio.  This week, Liza is dressed in a plantation dress in a beautiful burnt orange color.  It was great to walk in and see this wonderful color.  I used gouache instead of watercolor.  I’m trying to get deeper more saturated color in my work and gouache will do that for me.  So I’m off on a new painting technique.
