I absolutely love this. I just discovered gouache and played around with some portrait studies as well, but I'm nowhere as good as you are ... great job!

This is beautiful. Can I ask - which brand of gouache paints did you use? And do you think different brands make a big difference?

Awesome! I'm practising with gouache now in class and its really hard to control!
cklum's avatar
thanx! all u need 2 do is make sure the shape is correct, tonal value & colour is accurate enoght 2 show the 3D contour. try it~ enjoy~~~

The problem is that the colours dry very fast, and if I use wather it looks like water-color, and that's not the result I want! >.<
cklum's avatar
yeah! so u need 2 mix the right tonal value & colour, gouache is not about blending colour like water colour, u can blend it usinf different size of strokes & lines. ^^

Wow nice gouache work!
Did you do it using the gouache direct from the tube? or you had the colors mixed with water first??
