Review this item
  • Excellent introduction to gouache painting.

    I agree with the previous reviewers comments. The book gives a number of ways to work with gouache and demonstrates the process. Myself I feel Gouache is a very under rated medium. It is very versatile great for loose and detailed work. No mediums to add or retarders, boosters or whatever. Just add a little water. John Inkson (Wolverhampton, United Kingdom) on 4 Aug 2019
