This book is a highly practical step-by-step guide to working with gouache, not only to teach and inspire novice painters but also to introduce more experienced artists to the advantages of using this much overlooked, but wonderful, medium. If you love painting with watercolour and are ready to experiment with something different, then the versatile medium of gouache could be just the thing for you. Gouache is water-based, quick-drying and, because you can paint light over dark as well as dark over light, it is less exacting and ideal for the beginner; it can be used thinly in a watercolour style, or more thickly as with oils or acrylics. This guide covers all the materials and tools required and has a comprehensive techniques section that includes overlaying colours, colour blending and troubleshooting. Experienced author Jeremy Ford takes you through three simple, step-by-step projects - a unique gouache style, a poster style, and a photo realistic style. He also gives guidance on how to develop your own unique style of gouache. Numerous finished paintings will inspire you and show the versatility in terms of subject, style and technique that you can achieve using this exciting medium.

Also known as opaque watercolor, gouache is the most brilliant of all painting mediums, possessing the greatest degree of opacity and capable of the finest detail work. Often erroneously thought to be impermanent--and therefore used only for commercial work that is not meant to be saved--gouache in fact provides the artist with as many permanent colors as oil, watercolor, or acrylic. Not only is it the favorite medium of illustrators and graphic artists, but it is also prized by watercolor artists for adding color and special effects to their paintings. Despite this popularity, gouache has received scant attention in art instruction books. Gouache for Illustration, the first book on gouache materials and techniques, provides all the information illustrators and fine artists need to know about this rewarding medium. Among this book's special features are: Comprehensive consumer guide comparing professional paint brands Series of simple tests for evaluating paints and brushes Section on color recipes for rendering various surfaces Gallery of step-by-step demonstrations of illustrations, for which gouache is often the medium of choice In this one-of-a-kind book, Rob Howard demonstrates how fine artists and illustrators can master this dynamic medium. Rob Howard, co-owner of the Studio for Illustration in Boston, has over forty years of experience in all aspects of art and now operates his own portrait studio. He has illustrated eleven books, and he authored The Illustrator's Bible, the top-selling definitive sourcebook of illustration techniques. Over the years, his illustrations toured numerous shows and museums. His advertising client list includes major advertising agencies and dozens of high-profile business corporations.
