Jay. Am trying this with my gouache. Thank you. It is popular Because of its simplicity. Basic painting knowledge tutorials is not often given this generous.  eventhough it is photoshop,layering with gouache works the same way.

Thanks! This is really useful and helps me with my backgrounds a lot ^.^
Oh, and in case you used Gimp, what brush did you use for the leaves?

if you use gouache try a stippler brush, if you don't have that try a cottonswap or a small flat just twist and turn. In photoshop you should be able to add selected brush shape

Thank you for posting this! It was a ton of help. I don't have a lot of experience doing backgrounds so this was incredibly helpful. I used it for this piece: Tortoiseshell Fox

Gave it a good try today.  I still have a lot to learn about digital painting.  Not bad but not great either.  I'll probably revisit it once I get better at it.
