Most of the gouache paint tubes I ordered arrived today, and I had a chance to try them out on the left side of the hand in the foreground--but had to color-correct it in Photoshop 'cause man, look at what my scanner (bottom half--the top half is a photo) does to the gouache "Opera Pink" color (at bottom, second from left):

Bleh! Hmph. Gotta see if I can find some scanner-friendly hues.

"Waves or Particles"

Better take care!
You start out on Watercolors,
Then before you
Know it, Tinctures!
Then one morning
You're waking up
All covered with
Dried Acrylics!!!

Oh man, so right. I sort of belatedly realized gouache is like one of the most expensive paint types, too :P

Never worked in Gouache. Looks like your taking the color plunge. It'll be an interesting change. ;)

It's kinda neat! Kind of the opposite of regular watercolors in a lot of ways.

Gouache is just opaque watercolour as opposed to transparent watercolour (which I use, doesn't dullen ink lines).
Ben, where did you get your scanner, a dumpster? You should be able to adjust colour tint on scanner easily enuf.

I got it from Amazon! ;_; I can adjust tints, it's just that it isn't like the whole purplish band, it's JUST THAT ONE PAINT. Weird! I guess the scanner's allergic to it.
