Dingler, Fred – Painting with Gouache

Gouache

The most popular and a very good brand of paint is Winsor and Newton Designers Gouache. There are other good brands on the market and we will cover that in class.

If you are new to gouache and to save money buy:

  • White
  • Ultramarine blue
  • Alizarin crimson
  • Cadmium yellow
  • Burnt sienna

There is another type of gouache. Acryla Gouache made by Holbein. It is an acrylic polymer. To me a great substitute for regular acrylic paint. This paint is more opaque than acrylics. We will discuss this in class or if you want to try it then buy the same colors and supplies.

Other Supplies

  • Bring illustration board {Crescent}
