From My Art Journal Pages…Painting in Gouache

Art Journals With Water Color Paper Are Perfect for Mixed Media Art Pages

I like to have lots of different kinds of art journals for different purposes.  I like to paint, be free to use heavy markers and all kinds of mixed media materials, so I use journals with good quality water color paper. I also love using  gouache paint, as well as water colors and acrylic paints. Gouache is similar to water color paints but is more opaque than water color, so it’s very versatile. It can also become light and transparent when diluted with water, and you can get that delicate wash you get with water color. Gouache colors are very vibrant. I would love to hear more art tips from fellow art journalists! Please share your blogs and your inspiration with me.
