(Check these little gems out)
There is a paint that is portable, water-based media, is easy to clean up- and is opaque. That paint is gouache. It hadn't even occurred to me till last week. I used to have some but only used it for decorating things. In fact, it is often billed as an illustrator's medium. I decided to do some research on it. Looking on Amazon, I saw very few books about it. Google didn't bring up much about it, either. There are some very fine painters that come up on a Google search who are turning out cool work with gouache, but most of what I found was cute dolphins or turtles that looked like they were for children's books. I even looked to Youtube- not even much there. After looking at the work by fine artists that I did find, I decided I'd like to learn more.
|Me, waiting for my new paint. FedEx needs to show up already.|
You can be sure I will be posting more about gouache as I work my way through this phase. Till then, I'm going back to see if my package is here yet.
Thanks for stopping by! Alice
