RALPH’S ART BLOG

My Blog is dedicated to notes on working with gouache, ramblings about how I use it, and about producing art in general.  It’s an informal site where I post sketches, the occasional step-by-step, and accounts of our experiences doing art festivals.  Visit me at www.ralphparker.wordpress.com

    PS: As a transplanted Texan, and an architect in a former life, I can relate to your experience and your fine paintings. Keep it up!

    hi ralph…i have a studio gallery in grand bend ontario ….happened on your site by chance as i fancied gouache as a substitute or replacement from acrylic….only problem i can see is my support of choice is wood panel or canvas…would gouache compliment those supports……i am preferably landscape especially trees orientated and find your work pops out more than acrylic….obviously your wonderfull talent compliments such…….cheers….d.culbard

    • Hi Derek. Canvas may not be a good support. Gouache can crack if it’s on a really flexible support, and especially if the support is rolled or folded. Wood panel is good, but I’d suggest sealing it and using a light coat of gesso. thanks for looking in!
