Gouache is an opaque paint that is mixed with water to achieve a vibrant and happy work of art. Normally I work in water-color washed over a micron pen, but sometimes to achieve the saturation of color, I use gouache. I also just like saying the work "gouache." One can find it available in tubes or in a cake palette. The paper needs to be a heavier paper in order to hold the paint. I enjoy answering any questions that you might have if you feel inspired to paint!
