Sunday BBQ

After church a few of us usually eat out; this rooster lives on the shelf at the local BBQ place. Our food arrived before I could sketch much more; I added color later at home.

I tried painting this with a bit of gouache instead of transparent watercolor, though the red is regular watercolor. I ordered a set of gouache on eBay but was sent a few wrong tubes. The seller refunded me but I still need to buy some reds.

Gouache seems to work a bit better on this yucky Moleskine sketchbook paper, yet not as easy as watercolor pencils. It still must be applied fairly dry.
