Playing around with gouache


Monday’s art class was all about creative ways to use gouache [goo-osh] with other water media [acrylic and watercolour].  This little [7 1/2” x 10”] study began with a bright watercolor wash in yellow, orange, & reds over the top 2/3 of the page.  We added a bit of cooler color on the bottom 1/3 of the paper which would later become our land.  After that dried we mixed up white gouache with blue watercolors into a juicy, thick puddle and used it to paint around some tree forms.  What a fun way to paint…  I say that all the time…  ALL painting is fun!
