Gouache painting

Untitled,  gouache, ink on Arches hot press 90lb watercolour paper,  (7 1/2" x 10") ,  2013
I'm a big fan of gouache paint. I've always loved the consistency of it and the fact that the colours mix so easily. Funny that gouache paint is in essence the equivalent of opaque watercolour paint. I mention this only because I've tried my hand at doing watercolour painting and I've always felt frustrated using it. I prefer the chalkiness of gouache versus the watery effects of watercolour.
