I really like this! Ronell and I just had a discussion about how we'd like to get into gouache painting - I love the way you use them.

hi Casey!! Hey, painting with gouache is really wonderful. I like it better than acrylics. What I'm trying now is a oily liquid used for acryl. to lengthen the drying times, so you can blend colours if you need to. Anyway without it, I love gouache.
I think the original by Manet is pastels. my book about him doesn't say but for how it looks... i guess so.
Thanks so much for visiting! and hope to soon see your works with gouache!!!!
