Another Gouache Gal


Experiments with gouache continue. Anyone who wants to share a gouache link, please add a comment. I can’t find much in the way of step-by-steps and tutorials, except for this one showcasing rocks and many more that use transparent watercolors to render things like raindrops on roses. I am picking up how to mix a better consistency of paint (“like cream” is one description I read). This artwork was done last night on cold press watercolor paper; her complexion would improve on hot press! If you love gouache as much as I do, here are some links to my two favorite gouache artists:

MARY BLAIR: There are many example on the ASIFA Hollywood Animation Archive, which is a fabulous resource. Most people know about her work at Disney, but I am especially fond of her illustrations for The Golden Books. Examples can be found here, here, here, here, and here.

TIM BISKUP: Modern master with an uncontrollable imagination. See his website. Also this nice profile. He is so damn prolific!
