Life Drawing with Gouache

I brought my gouache paints to life drawing today to see if I could paint a figure in gouache.

I think I would have done better on this painting if I would have focused more on the portrait rather than trying to get the whole figure on the board. I’m working really slow with gouache. Even though I’ve worked with it several times in the past I still fill like I’m trying to figure out the basics.
