This one's a tad less intricate than the one before.

Hi James, I notice you often use casein as an undercoat but I don't understand why you wouldn't paint the scene in casein as's easier to correct a slip up and it's a paint you often used in the past.
Enjoy your emails every night!

Terry, I have done many paintings all in casein. But I like gouache better for fine detail, and with gouache I don't need to worry about the paint drying on the brush if I have to wait a while to clean them.
