@Lyrilith I’m not normally a fan of gouache, but this is nicely done.
@indixotic Thank you! Gouache is really weird, but I've seen so many cool paintings done with it, I was curious to try it myself. It's definitely something you need to get used to. ^^°
@Lyrilith definitely. Keep going with it. If there’s more gouache art like this in the world, I might have to change my mind about the medium.
@kaerhon @darckcrystale @Lyrilith :'D there ain't rly anything to explain that I haven't said tbh, u just
add some water to ur pure gouache
mix it w ur brush
and bam, tiny bubbles appear in the gouache, good consistency for opacity + evenness acquired and it helps painting good flat colors! (but white gouache is still very much unbearable even with this lmao-)
@Lyrilith I never did GOUACHE gouache in school but my aqueous media professor had us buy white gouache and mix that with watercolors to make gouache. I was amazed at how I was able to to paint over areas again and again. Gouache was used all the time in older days of commercial art because it photographs well (no shine, I guess).
James Gurney is a fan, I bet he'd have some advice in his archives: https://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/search/label/Gouache
@AesAthena I'll check it out. Thanks! :)
And yeah, I've seen some people use white gouache and mixing it with watercolors for specs of opaque color.
@Lyrilith Oh wait, I guess I did this in gouache, too. I don't remember painting it, unlike the owl. *shrug* Posted for your entertainment.
@gekitsu This is a really good video. Thank you! :D
@Lyrilith aw yay, i’m so glad to hear :D you are most welcome!
