Giving gouache a go

Updated: Oct 19, 2021

I didn't know what gouache was when my art tutor told us to get some and bring it to class the following week. That, I think, is one of the good things about having tutors - it seems they invariably like to push you to step out of your comfort zone and try new things.

And how did my go with gouache go? Well, I found it much more forgiving than watercolour, which was quite a relief. And I enjoyed working in just black and white and concentrating on tone - oops - retreating back to my comfort zone again already!

Some quick sketches on toned paper of pictures from the very handy Quickposes website.

Note to self: give gouache another go!
