The Secret To Gouache

If you have been reading my blog you know that I am always striving to improve my gouaching skills. This is because I LOVE GOUACHE and I am committed to making this relationship work!! The one thing I have found since I started using it is that the most IMPORTANT thing is to have exactly the right amount of water in it. Too little water and it streaks like hell and refuses to blend, to much water and it dries with ugly little marks in areas that the brush has touched last. It is very finicky but when you get it just right it is even and vibrant. LOVING IT!

Have a happy day!
