Step 1: Testing Arteza Gouache

I've tested the gouache before painting the angel illustration.

Colours were labelled with respect to their opacity, transparency, and lightfastness.

In the picture you can see all the swatches.

Step 2: Base Colour

I worked as in watercolour, with a pink transparent layer as base.

I also added some shadows with purple and sky blue.

Step 3: Layering

After first layer was dried, I added shadows with red, darker pink and blue.

I started layering the wing with grey and sky blue.

Step 4: Final Layers

In the latest layers I added yellow reflections and coloured angel's hair.

I painted white reflections on the wing.

Step 5: Details

Once gouache was dried, I used a smaller brush to create details with white, blue and brown.

Thank you for following my Instructable, please watch the video process to follow all the steps.
