Working with Thick Gouache

One of my objectives for International Fake Journal Month is to work in thick gouache.  When used directly from the tube, gouache behaves somewhat like acrylic, without the clean-up issues.  (Gouache is water-soluble even when dry).  When you use it thick, without diluting it with water, paper thickness/quality isn't an issue either.  This painting of a kite at the Minchinhampton Kite Festival was done on drawing paper and collaged on the page later.  (I also used gouache directly on my background print on the Peter Rabbit page here.)
