Gouache is great for fine art, illumination and illustration work, quick drying and correctable.
If you've not tried it, it's a bit like using a controllable, thick watercolour paint.
Gouache has an opaque, matt, almost velvet finish and I find it another amenable medium. For an introduction to Gouache painting click the link.
For all of the paintings on this page the subject was drawn first, this allows for any corrections before putting either medium to paper, although both are correctable, the corrections always show to the experienced eye!
I rarely work above 10" x 8" with these two media.


Gouache can be used in mixed media painting.
