At the moment, I’m on a gouache spree and I’m loving it.
I made an investment of buying the complete 12 bottle set of Reeves gouache paint as a year 1 student at unilag and it’s been worth it. (Wouldn’t mind switching to winsor and Newton though *wink*)
Sometimes (more times than I can count), I use gouache as water color and it works everytime.
• Its easy to use.
• It’s pretty good for dry brush painting.
• Colors are super saturated which makes using them alone fun.
• it’s useful when trying to mimic watercolor.
• Amazing wash quality.
The only fault I find is when mixed with other colors it tends to lose its lustre and makes the colors a little dull. So I tend to mix my colors down for a day and even sometimes a week or month prior.
Other than that, it’s pretty awesome. Do give it a try❤️
