Fox on a summer evening by GraceGoesGalactic Fox on a summer evening by GraceGoesGalactic
I am so ready for Summer already. I'm deeply inspired by the fireflies that illuminate the forests near me. I can't wait!

This was just a playful sketch that turned into a gouache experiment. I had never used gouache before but I think I really like it. At least hear the opacity in the color made it easy to make for a fun playful mood. My dream is to one day illustrate a kid's book and I think gouache could be really helpful in getting there. :D

Gouache is so cool! It really gives a different atmosphere than watercolor! Also...I've only ever seen fireflies one time. Jealoussss hahaha

Yes! I really like it, it is definitely completely different than watercolor.
Hmm really? I see them every summer. I guess that's the only good thing about living in Ohio? Haha where are you from?

Well I'll say that I would much rather live in California! But at least you got to see them once :)

It's definitely pretty in the country areas. I just can't stand being cold and it gets cold here pretty often! 🌬❄️🌨
