Gouache is an opaque water-based paint.
It handles a lot like poster paints, and
has a matte finish.

There are only a couple of blank
pages left in this little journal made
from pink drawing paper.
This pen drawing is similar to one I did
for a swap, here, in which the theme was East Indian
art. I liked the textures and patterns so much,
that I did a page for myself in this journal.
I think I may have to add watercolor
to this. Do you think it needs color?
Another page using gouache,
where I used up the colors left on my
palette. When I start to think that my
journal pages are becoming too similar
to each other, it's time to try something different,
like no words, just shapes-texture-color!
