Welcome to the world of Gouache!


Volume I of our new Gouache Mixing Guides provides you with the foundational education necessary to venturing into the wonderful world of gouache. As with previous guides, I share my handcrafted color mixes, which I've lovingly titled “recipes;" these are now yours to use in your work. Additionally, these educational resource is filled with tips to use gouache with success. I go over the transition from watercolor to gouache including: paint consistancy, creating layers, palette setup, color ratios, and more!


In this digital document you will find 15 original colors I’ve titled “The Meadow Series,” centering around lush greens, soft yellows and syrupy browns.


Additionally, I’ve also included the piece I painted so you can see exactly how these colors work together; however you are free to use them in any way that pleases you! For additional clarity, and for my international students, I have included the pigment numbers, if in the event you don’t have the exact palette I work with. This will allow you to come up with something very similar, and you may even like it better!


*** please note this is a digital resource only, and no actual paints are included with this purchase. You can purchase the gouache kit in conjuction with The Meadow Series and receive a limited sampling of the colors used in the guide.


Happy creating to you!
