Playing with a new medium

So I'm trying to step away from (mostly) digital illustration for a bit and have dipped my college-era paintbrushes into some gouache.  I have only dabbled in the medium in the past but can't consider myself remotely experienced.  This is a quick piece where I was playing with gouache, colored pencil, and ballpoint pen on bristol.  I really like the texture of the paint when I went to draw on it with the pencil.  So any suggestions on the medium and tools?  I can't wait to play more!!!

    Gouache is a great medium. Have fun experimenting!
