Dingler, Fred – Painting with Gouache

  • I have worked with Gouache for 40 years.  Gouache is an opaque cousin of watercolor.  Watercolor is a stain and Gouache is paint
  • There are many brands of paint. My favorite is Winsor & Newton Designers Gouache
  • To work in black and white, students can start with Titanium White and Ivory Black
  • Add color with this palette: Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Red Light, and Ultramarine Blue. (Great way to learn to mix color)
  • Or start with any colors, student’s choice
  • Brushes for gouache are the same as watercolor brushes.  Good brushes are a must.  Rounds and Flats.  Not bristle brushes
  • Plastic palette or ordinary dinner plate
  • Water container
  • Pencils and erasers
  • Best surface is Illustration Board.   Watercolor paper is ok (not hot press)
