Are there any other gouache artists out there?

I'm not certain why gouache is considered a watercolor... because it thins with water? so does acrylic... and water-based oils, and several other mediums... like clay! Also, it is very rare that I find any information or techniques on gouache. And "gouache" isn't even in the spell check!!

This has always been a mystery to me. I entered into a heated debate with a gallery owner over gouache being "just another watercolor." Maybe I'm biased since I work in this medium.

Any thoughts?
