Gouache Tests

I've been trying out some Gouache paint lately and it's bloody great. It's a watercolour medium, but dries opaque, which means it's super easy to work with, cleans up good and is dries fast. I'm planning to do more formal studies soon, but for now, here's a few glimpses at some sketchbook stuff. More soon!


  1. Awesome!
    I really like how these paintings still feel a lot like your sketches in terms of style! It's not easy to keep a consistent style when moving between different mediums!

  2. Nice Jordan - You should check out the Syd Mead Gnomon DVD's if you can find them (there's one or two left in the office). All of his work is done using Gouache.

  3. Thanks all :) Plenty more little doodles to come I think. It;s just so lovely to work with in regards to time consumption of set-up / drying time etc.

    @Alan - I have seen those DVD's before I think. There is a copy of the set in the library as well. I could do with watching them again though. I'd like to do some proper studies (still life, portraits, landscapes) so more knowledge would help.
