I have been experimenting with gouache this week, I have not used it before mainly because every time I went to buy some I thought it was quite expensive. I just wanted to get a general feel for it so started with trying it out straight from the tube, then watered down, and then flat areas of colour onto paper and canvas. I also have a new camera and am still working my way through the manual!! Some of my photographs have been a bit of  a disaster, will post my first attempts later on in the week.


  1. I love gouache. I can really see the difference the opacity makes in your painting. Are you enjoying it?

  2. Not sure yet, at the moment it's all looking a bit flat so I need to keep experimenting. I like the intensity of the colours even when watered down they are still very bright.
