Guached!

Add caption
After working exclusively in watercolor, I succumbed to the siren call of gouache.  I used a Strathmore spiral bound notebook with black paper.  It was such fun to  paintin the whites instead of painting around them!  I, like Cathy, found the colors dried quite different from their wet intensity, but I will certainly follow up with more of this fun medium!

  1. It's a very seductive medium and you find you keep going back to it. I hated poster paints as a child. If I'd only known. Now I want the paint manufacturers to come up with a moist tin of gouache that will give the quality of tubes.
