From Sketchbook 1973-1976, study in gouache of fern and stones in what is now the Howard P. Rawlings Conservatory in Druid Hill Park. Gouache, something like watercolor but opaque, was already not working for me. I had layered black over layers of gray, and the black paint peeled off as it dried. Not lightfast either, no fun to use, no substitute for markers.
