Painting on watercolor hot press primed with gesso

When it’s too cold to go outside, open the refrigerator and find something to paint. BEETS! This started with a quick gestural sketch. My first pass was watercolor. Then I decided it needed gouache. I was much happier using the gouache. The perk of the gesso surface was I could wipe and lift areas.

My initial thought was a yellow ochre and grey background.
