Sketch With Me! #7 Painting Landscape Experiments with Gouache

Today I scratch that painting itch by exploring a new medium--- gouache-- in these three landscape paintings.

Mentioned in video:
Tara Jane Art tarajaneart...
Hodges Soileau

Here are some other incredible gouache artists I came across after editing the video! They're also incredible, if you're interested (all instagram users)

    This is a year late, but James Gurney is a gouache painter who specializes in plein air paintings, heโ€™s great and he has a couple of books on light and shadows and constructing imagery. Never read them myself but it is in my wishlist. And with gouache you need to have a good balance between paint and water, too watery and itโ€™ll look patchy and will lift up the paint below and too thick and itโ€™ll be hard to move around and may even flake off. It should be the consistency between cream or yoghurt. During my art school years in my first two years I was restricted to gouache for projects and still paintings so my experience was trial by fire. Even if this doesnโ€™t reach you or the info came too late, I still hope someone can get some use out of what I just said.

He paints a lot of Plain Air too and explains the advantages very good, and he is in general a very good teacher. Not that I think you need one, but since you asked...^^

    Iโ€™ve found gouache more than any watercolor or acrylics I have used quality matters. The cheap black I had would rewet without be really patchy (all the gouache I have a tube ones), however a slightly better quality one rewet and mixes beautifully, and it far more opaque than the cheaper one. Just wondering if you white may be similar. However ive never used pan gouache before.

    "Why don't you just take a photo" Because I have my own perception of the world and want to capture it. That's honestly the best answer I've come up with to respond to anyone who's asked me. Everyone perceives the world differently, so it all comes down to that simple answer. Because *you* perceive the world a certain way and wish to study this moment.

    just a suggestion: if you want kinda sharper edges, maybe you can put duct tape, or really any kind of tape around the edges of the paper, so that when you are done painting, you can peel the tape off, and have a nice finished look. >w

    I just finished my senior art thesis of two fully inked and colored comic issues with gouache and watercolors when this came out so I put off watching this until now. RIght now I'm working on a set of illustrations to become stickers, and also star wars fanart for fun. As for artist recommendations, I really like James Gurnsey's work- he did Dinotopia and he has a great book on lighting and shadow and has a youtube channel. He works in watercolor and gouache.

    I'm trying to bring my artistic side back after a long absence (10+ yrs) and a traumatic burnout from college. *Life lesson kids: Don't let your professors push you past your physical limitations.* So I'm going to be starting with sketching fabric folds, my own feet and hands, my cats...I have chronic migraines so I'm very light sensitive and can't turn my 60W bulb up more than maybe 40%-60% on a good day and 0%-30% on a bad day, yes that means completely off on many bad days. It will be difficult, but I have to start somewhere, right?

    I find people are not usually looking for a long explanation. but something simple that will satisfy them when they have questions. something along the lines of "I enjoy the process" "I find this more relaxing" something that will explain an added value to the paint that they aren't seeing.

    KossechiDraws11 months ago

    gouache tends to work better from tubes as you get a better consistency as its already wet. it's more opaque when you use less water. As for the white, it depends on whether you were using zinc white or titanium /permanent white as zinc white is more for colour mixing than highlights. James Gurney is an excellent gouache painter he has a youtube channel and posts regularly. Myriam Tillson is another great gouache painter and also has her own youtube channel

    When people ask why don't you take a photo usually my response is I already took a photo and now I'm improving my art skills. If I'm tired I'll say because I wanna. XD I'm not sure if it's rude but sometimes I don't want to explain I want to draw or paint. I love these sketch or paint sessions by the way. They are as inspiring as your doll repaints. Have a great day.
