Oh My Gouache! The Beginners Guide to Painting with Opaque Watercolour

Oh My Gouache! is a comprehensive beginner's guide to painting in gouache, a paint medium that creates opaque effects making it more vibrant and graphic than traditional watercolours.

Due to the opacity of gouache, it can be layered, painted on dark backgrounds and dries quickly which is a great bonus!  

Zoe takes you through the basics and explains what tools and materials you'll need to get started with this beautiful medium, then explores a wide range of techniques and finally, there are a host of fun and vibrant step-by-step projects that you can follow along with or use as a springboard for your own ideas. 

Zoe Ingram's distinctive art makes this book a visual treat, as she shows you how she paints a variety of subjects, from birds and bugs, to flowers and foliage, to abstract collages, hand lettering and patterns.

 Along the way you'll learn about colour theory, colour mixing, sketching, washes, mark making, line work, overlaying, working on dark backgrounds, how to get crisp edges, how to add details, different approaches to collage and even how to digitise your work so that you can create repeat patterns and custom prints.
