Gouache Painting

Gouache allows you to work in a watercolor fashion with the advantages of a heavier body paint similar to acrylic. It can be used full strength out of the tube or mixed with water to create a large range of shades and effects, and applied on a wide variety of surfaces. This month we challenge you to create a gouache painting inspired by your favorite foods!
