Upcoming Article in International Artist on Black and White

The new issue of International Artist magazine has an article on basic painting in black and white, based on my new Gumroad video

I thought I was ordering black gouache but I got ivory black watercolor instead. I have white gouache. I've been wondering if it would be worthwhile to begin the exercises in the video with that combination. You seem to to mix the two freely in other examples since I believe you said elsewhere that once you add white gouache to watercolor it's all considered gouache anyway.

Scott, yes, using black watercolor is probably better than using black gouache because the transparent character will be better, and it will be opaque once you add the white.
