Today in this class, we will explore Gouache- Gouache is a really popular medium nowadays and has increased more attention in the recent 6-7 years among artists and graphic designers. Gouache is a water based medium made with natural pigments, water and binding agent, and sometimes chalk to increase the opacity of the pigment. This medium is mostly used by commercial artists for posters, illustrations, comics, and other design work.
