Hi there! I've been following your work for a little bit now and I can't seem to stop being amazed by your ideas and lovely lovely colors. Very creative and inspirational! I have been wanting to try gouache for awhile now..I wanted to know are they quite similar to watercolors? And what paper do you usually use or recommend to use when painting with gouache? Thank you for your time :)
Thanks so much! They’re pretty similar, except gouache is way more opaque and lends itself better to layering and drybrushing than watercolor does. It can be a bit tricky use though, as darker colors tend to dry lighter and lighter colors dry a bit darker. This can sometimes lead to a dull, muddy look, especially if you’re mixing in white.
Hope that helps!
