Gouache is an amazing medium. Use it with lots of water for washes and that watercolor look. Then use it out of the tube with no water and it’s opaque like oil paint but magically drys like acrylic! Whats not to like!

Mike Rooney will show you how to master this unique and fun medium for journaling, planning paintings and for using it for the final artwork.
