Calligraphy Brush for Gouache

13/100 of my #100daychallenge.

Today I decided to play with my calligraphy brush, one of my favorites! It’s a super cheap one I got ages ago, but I love it for watercolor and gouache. Especially when I want to water down the gouache to create some softness.

Watering down the gouache to create soft shadows, letting it dry, then coming back in with thicker gouache and adding the details. Finished off with a tiny bit of dry brush for the glistening highlight on the snow.
