Frequently Asked Questions
I bought my first set of gouache paints for design college over 10 years ago! It was on the materials list, so I got a set of primary colours. We never actually used it though, and my little set of gouache paint got pushed to the back of the cupboard. I developed as a fine artist painting with acrylic paint on huge canvases, and I forgot all about gouache.
Fast forward a few more years, and I find myself living on a really remote island in Indonesia. Because we accessed our island home by a tiny seaplane with strict luggage restrictions, I had to downsize my artwork significantly. So I began experimenting with different mediums, and I re-discovered the same old tubes of gouache that I’d bought for college all those years ago. Some of the tubes were pretty much dried up, but I discovered that I could rewet the paint with water!
I found gouache a little tricky to work with at first. I had trouble getting the paint to spread easily, while still maintaining that beautiful bold finish that gouache is known for. It also took me a while to find the right paintbrush, and paper for the job, but once I did - the quality of my work changed overnight.
I'm ready to share all of my tips, tricks and secrets with you, and I want to open a world of creativity and colour to you through gouache!
Gouache is the perfect medium to capture the beautiful, bright colours of blooms and blossoms. It’s such a flexible and forgiving medium, which makes it a winner for beginners! Gouache has opened up a whole new world to so many of my students! Here's what they're saying!
"I never even considered gouache as an option... I always paint with acrylics. I don't like aquarelle since it's so definite and hard to paint over if I've made a mistake. You've definitely opened up my eyes for a whole new world!"
"I love trying new things and never used gouache before. I found out it is a very "forgiving"medium which allows me to make mistakes because it is easier to paint over with other colors etc.."
"I love painting with acrylics and watercolor. This medium has opened up so much for me in the painting world and I'm so thankful! I have discovered that I love gouache!"
