Brush Set Giveaway! Chicken Sketchbook Sunday & Tips for Working with Gouache!

Hi friends! I had so much fun playing with gouache in my sketchbook today. I forget how awesome gouache (opaque watercolor) paint is and how fun and forgiving it is to paint with.

Do to shipping restrictions this contest is open to USA residents only. For a chance to win simply leave a comment saying what state you are from and which brush set (unicorn or mermaid) you prefer.

OK, now on to the Sketchbook Sunday video! I hope you enjoy it!

Supplies: (Affiliate links may be used)

Tips for Gouache:
1. Work dark to light.

2.Work in thin layers (use a light touch to layer or be more aggressive to blend back to previous layers)

3. Use alone or with other media (over watercolor and marker, under pastel and colored pencil)

4. Mat and frame under glass as you would a watercolor.

5. Do not work in thick layers because the paint can crack.

6. Paper or matboard are excellent surfaces for gouache as it can bond well. Avoid using it on canvas or acrylic primed surfaces as the paint may not adhere well.

7. Play, experiment and have fun!

I hope the video give you insight on my process. I think diving in with the dark color can give you confidence and also speeds up the process because you get the dark values established quickly and you don’t have to fight the white paint which can overtake things quickly and muddy things up. If you want more help on your art journey, including real-time versions of 2 sketchbook sunday paintings a month consider joining critique club. You can post your current paintings and get a detailed critique from me and encouragement from other members, so you can improve and reach your artistic goals. Learn more here!

And one more shameless plug for the road…

If you want to paint better birds I have a class on that too:  Texture Toolbox Feathers & Fowl where you can learn how to capture the beauty of birds and the textures of feathers and plumage by following along with four step by step real-time tutorials with patterns included. There is also an archived list of all past bird tutorials I have created in case you are looking for something specific.

Phew! That was a long post! Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a set of brushes, give gouache a chance and til next time happy crafting!

  174. Hi Lindsay! I really enjoyed your chicken painting, she turned out lovely! I also wanted to say thanks for the information you provided about gouache. I started out painting with oils, but I rarely do it anymore because cleanup is such a hassle. After spending hours painting and exhausting my creative energy, I really dislike the time it takes to clean everything. I’ve started getting into watercolor, but as you mentioned, I do find the transparency a bit frustrating at times. I hate acrylics, so I think I’ll take your advice and try out some non-acrylic gouache. It sounds like it just might be a good medium for me. Thanks for doing what you do and providing us with so much information and inspiration! ***brush set preference: mermaid***

  211. Congratulations on being Featured Artist of the Month! I live in Michigan, and I’d love a change to win the unicorn set.

    I just got the Arteza gouache for Christmas, and this is the perfect project to start on. Thank you for sharing! I contacted Arteza about their lightfast ratings, and I’m confused by their response. The three stars (which is most of the gouache colors) is their lowest lightfast rating. However, the bright pink is two stars, so it is more lightfast than their white, black, and other colors that are generally lightfast. They haven’t responded to my latest email asking for clarification, and how they perform their tests. Have they answered any of those questions for you? Thank you.

    Like

    • congrats, you are a brush winner, check your email. They don’t preform the tests, they get the info from their supplier and some companies use the blue wool scale and some use ASTM, their pencils are opposite of what they say. Whatever the black, brown and earth tones say those will be the highest so you can adjust your reading of the ratings that way.

  420. Hi Lindsay,

    I have four sets of gouache paints and always wanted to paint a gouache-only painting. Your video gave me motivation and opportunity to do something new from what I have been doing – which is watercolor and oil painting.

    I started watercolor over a year ago, mostly from self-paced and YouTube videos. I enjoyed your videos and completed a few very nice paintings – many thanks. Watercolor taught me a lot about colors – something very useful in my oil painting classes that I took at a local community college.

    I have a collection of brushes – two cups full of just watercolor brushes. Your video appears to indicate that there is some difference between gouache and watercolor brushes. Can you elaborate and maybe recommend some gouache brushes?

    One of my gouache sets comes in pans – Caran D’ache Gouache studio of 15 colors with 14 pans and one white tube. Like you, I prefer not have to squeeze tubes during painting. Maybe you like to try it – not that you don’t have enough paints already 🙂

    Thank you again for the video. Your hen got the attitude!

I only really know how to sketch and some watercolors 😦 and that’s after watching your videos for about a year lmao. Without you and your expertise, I would be a total noob xD.

  508. Hi everyone. Lindsay I receive your newsletters and cant remember if I have ever commented. I collect chickens, roosters, sunflowers, and angels. I grew up on a farm and love the country farm house look. I love you, your work, and your sweetness. I live in Florida and love the mermaid set.

  510. This is so very cool. I’ve been seeing more and more videos of different artists who are starting to use (first time or picking it back up) gouache and using it in their art journals. I myself really enjoy both watercolors and acrylics but sometimes prefer the watercolors but struggle with using them in my art journals. This seems like the perfect solution! BTW, thank you for all your painting tutorials, Lindsay. I appreciate your time and your talent. I live in Arizona and really like the look of the copper/pink brushes.

  511. I love watching you paint Lindsay! I’m learning watercolor right now. Both sets of brushes are very pretty, but I’m favoring the unicorn ones. If you’re out of those I’ll take the mermaid ones. If I win of course!
