Gouache on Canvas Panel

Here is another way I use gouache, on canvas panels primed with clear gesso. I got this idea from using the gouache as an underpainting for my pastels. This is varnished with a matt spray varnish to protect the paint.

Re: Gouache on Canvas Panel

This Is great. I like the design. Your use of colors and values are really appealing to my taste. Does the varnish deepen the values? Gary

Real nice feel. I like the comp and color use.
I have used matte Gamvar to seal a coupe of gouache on primed panel. Used a very soft brush and deftly gave a quick coat, being careful to not go over a previous brush stroke. Dried matte and sealed very well, did not seem to darken after dry. I wouldn’t try this over paper though.

Re: Gouache on Canvas Panel

beautiful! I've been getting to gouache lately, but what kept me from being into it before was that I was told we have to frame gouache paintings under glass. So glad to know you don't have to.
what matt varnish did you use? and how many coats?

Re: Gouache on Canvas Panel

Thank you all for your kind words! I use a Krylon acrylic matte varnish and let it dry well between light coats. It seems to seal without darkening. I also use that same varnish over my watercolors on canvas with excellent results.

Re: Gouache on Canvas Panel

You could use Dorland wax to protect your gouache painting instead of glass.

PS Sorry about the bad edit. Here's a thread showing the technique.
