Gouache painting is growing in popularity. This medium dates back six hundred years, but you would think it was invented last year and everyone wants to try it out. Why is gouache popular? It is water-based and opaque and this makes it super versatile and beginner friendly. But is gouache easier to master? In this article I want to share thoughts on how to improve your gouache painting so that you get more out of the experience.
Gouache paint continues to grow in popularity. Many beginners over recent years have taken up gouache paint as a friendly opaque medium. Also many experienced artists are getting out their gouache paint for a fresh approach to familiar subjects. Gouache paint is popular because it combines the opaque nature of acrylics and oils without the issues of solvents in oil paint and the permanent drying nature of acrylic paint.
But gouache brings its own technical issues. These hurdles can be a problem for beginners to deal with.
In this article I want to look at a powerful process for learning how to use the paint quickly and effectively.

That journey resulted in my course Acrylic Painting for Beginners. But there was more to explore. The result? How to Paint Beautiful Landscape Paintings in Acrylics, the Master Series.
