I had a lovely afternoon at the art store this week, stocking up on supplies and looking for something new to experiment with. Inspiration hit when I stumbled across this bargain-priced set of gouache. I’ve never painted with gouache before, so I couldn’t resist this chance to try it out. I’ve heard it’s sort of like watercolor, except more opaque and more pigmenty.
I also picked up some paper tape, which has been on my art supply wish list for a while now. It is perfect for stretching paper:
This way the paper doesn’t buckle when it is painted on. Off to play with my new paints!
