I am thankful for the response. I enjoyed those sites. I am afraid I didn't make myself clear. I wanted info on an artist or sites that combined gouache with wc in the same painting. Mixed media type thing. Thanks I think this is harder to find. Appreciate your help!

Now I get it :D Keep the faith - Lady grey is coming :D
Ok - there's not much - but maybe something for you:
only one painting in gouache and watercolor - but still something

this is a gallery site, but there is information about artists too

That's all, I'm afraid:(

Hi Elaine :)
Don't know if I can be of any help but I use watercolour and gouache together all the time.
Especially in my wildlife and animal portraits.

This is a piece I did experimenting with watercolor and gouache. I did the watercolor first trying to get some flowing effects, then added the gouache for surface texture and highlights.

size 30" x 22"

I don't know of any web sites, but I will try to find some books if you are interested. Are you looking for specific info or just general suggestions on combining the media?

Stephen Quiller has some books and videos about combining watercolor with gouache (and acrylic with casein). See www.quillergallery.com (http://www.quillergallery.com)

i just decided to check out this forum and saw your headline about combining watercolor and gouache in the same painting. i do this often, in fact i rarely do a completely transparent watercolor, but respect those who can do it well.

here is such a piece, not for critique, but just to show you.


i could paint this in transparent hues, but it would not have the same effect as when the eye rests on paint that is not transparent surrounded by that which is, especially in a piece where i have something motionless with something meandering, for reasons more than one.

...anyway, for what its worth,
