How to draw gouache?
Before answering the question of how to paint with gouache, we recall that although this paint is made from the same substances as watercolor, unlike in watercolor, it is matte, dense, opaque. Gouache writing techniques, although similar to watercolor writing techniques, have their own characteristics.
Before we dwell on them in more detail, we recall that for writing with gouache paints, you will need gouache, water, masking liquid, watercolor paper and gouache brushes, preferably with natural bristles.
Writing techniques in gouache paints
There are several of them. The first is called "wet on dry." The name speaks for itself. You probably already guessed that you would need to write on dry paper with a brush with wet gouache. This technique is especially good if it is necessary to depict figures with clear outlines, but on the contrary, it is not necessary to blur the color.
The next technique is a disguise. Naturally, the question arises - what will we mask? And we will mask the places that should remain white. It is on them that a layer of masking fluid is applied, which, when dried, forms a moisture-proof film.When the paint dries in places where the liquid is applied, it is erased along with the film. And on the picture appear white clear contours.
Next - the technique of "wet on wet." More diluted with water than usual, paint is applied onto paper moistened with a brush. On top of the same paint is added, too, strongly diluted, but in a different tone. As a result, the paint will begin to blur, forming a bizarre shape.
Another technique - "graffito". It is characterized by speed. The paint applied in several layers should not have time to dry. At the end of the work, the topmost layer needs to be scratched with the edge of a knife or a pointed stick. It is necessary to scratch so that the lower layer appears. This technique is good for creating textured paintings.
And finally, the spraying technique. It will need a small paint brush, certainly a new one. The brush is dipped into the paint, then the bristles are pulled back and released. As a result, pretty splashes appear on paper in different directions.
How to draw flowers in gouache
Flowers especially love to portray children. Before you begin to draw with gouache paints, which must be prepared in advance, you must draw a sketch with a pencil.Then the colors are mixed on the palette. Good preljat opacity color white. With their help, you can transfer and fading colors.
If children draw, then adults need to draw their attention to the fact that those places where light falls on the petals will be lighter and, on the contrary, they are darker in the shade. And yet - the contours of the petals should not be allocated with another color, especially black.
How to draw a landscape in gouache
If you paint a landscape, remember that paints can be applied with any brush or even a palette knife - it’s good that gouache, unlike oil, dries quickly.
And one more rule: the landscape is better to draw from life. First, the background is applied in broad strokes, then a sketch is made with a solid pencil. The sky and clouds are drawn first in the landscape. The composition should be carefully thought out: what is in the front, what is in the background, how to relate these plans to each other. And at the very end, small details are drawn, for which brushes of different quality, bristles and diameters are used.
