Caran d'Ache Gouache in Cakes

Most of my vacations are spent with my wife and there is little time for painting. No regrets there.

I do vacation in Michigan - to visit my family and friends - 2-3 times a year; my wife only joining me once a year. I having been wanting a easy painting medium to take with me for a little plein air and otherwise.

I bought Caran d'Ache Gouache in Cakes to try a few years ago but then lost interest.

This year I noticed that Michael Chesley Johnson took a set to Scotland for a week.

I am trying to give them another go. I am interested if anyone else uses these for travel or otherwise. An attempt by me below. C&C welcome. Gary

I use Caran d'Ache pan gouache, tho not so much plein air where I use pen and watercolours.

CD pan gouache are ideal as they re-wet easily and I have used them to paint minis in front of the TV.

Lovely result Gary. I've found pen and watercolour pencils are good for quick plein air studies, as wife gets bored if spend any longer, but she enjoys having a go with the pencils too, sometimes.

Re: Caran d'Ache Gouache in Cakes

Thanks Yorky. The easy rewetting is one of the most appealing aspects of these. My first couple of attempts sunk into the paper too much and made for dull results. I used acrylic matte medium to seal the surface at the beginning in the last 2 efforts.

Thanks Arnie. I have carried a few watercolor and lead pencils as well. I do not use enough self restraint in using transparent colors alone. Washes over pen work is an idea that I might try.

My kit below.

Amen. It does almost ruin that section for mixing. Gary
