I have taken yesterday's pen & ink drawing and worked in various tints of Gouache.
I used Gouache all through college and into my time as a greeting card illustrator.
It's very versatile when used opaquely or watered down to thin washes.
In the classroom, Gouache of course is cost prohibited.
Enter the much used Tempera.
I used a student grade Tempera by Dick Blick and I have to say it always
worked well for my and the students needs in the art room.
Tempera was my favorite medium for color value lessons
tints and shades usually within the frame of an Impressionist lesson.
Pen & Ink with Gouache
I love the rich opaques allowing just enough line work to show thru.
I will have to do more of these!
