Rediscovering Gouache: A New Approach to a Versatile Technique for Contemporary Artists and Illustrators (Paperback)
Gouache, a classic painting and drawing technique used by Turner, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Gris, Braque, Matisse and Mir , among many others, acquires in this volume a new dimension by offering a bolder approach for contemporary artists, illustrators, graphic designers and amateurs. Award-winning illustrator and art teacher Aljoscha Blau shares his many years of experience, offers material recommendations, tips for swift success, suggestions on composition, use of colour, tools and processes. And he spices it all up with his own illustrations, which are both an incentive and a feast for the eyes. By means of entertaining texts and step-by-step illustrations, Blau lays out a safe and fascinating road to success for anyone willing to improve their technique or for those who want to try it for the first time.
