"Gouache"—hard to spell, but fun to paint with.
Today is the release of the new video tutorial about painting on location in gouache, or opaque watercolor. I'll tackle six different subjects, with each episode focusing on a different approach to the medium.
The subjects include a neon sign, a snowy landscape at dusk, a convenience store, a swamp, some antique character toys, and a Formula 1 race car. Some of the studies are precise and controlled, and others are bold and painterly.
Gouache is a time-honored and versatile medium, a favorite with both professionals and beginning painters because of its portability, opacity and suitability for fine detail.
But it also presents its own unique challenges, so I share plenty of practical information about formulations, materials, and painting exercises. For example, painting in black and white is a good way to get accustomed to the medium—or to paint in tight quarters, such as a concert hall or a restaurant.
Stay tuned this week, as I'll share other samples from the video. And mark your calendar: On Wednesday at 4:00 pm Eastern Time, I'll do a free streaming demo of gouache on location via ConcertWindow. Click the link to see my page there.
