Gouache the All-Rounder

Author: Aljoscha Blau

Handling rights: Simplified and Complex Chinese.

Gouache is the all-rounder that makes your dreams of painting and drawing come true. Newly discovered and presented by Aljoscha Blau, one of the most renowned illustrators in German-speaking countries. Diluted, working with gouache is almost like with watercolour. Used as a paste, the paint is applied in opaque layers with a matte surface reminiscent of pastels. Soluble in water, it forgives “mistakes” and allows for corrections and revisions. The fine grain of the pigments makes detailed drawings possible. Gouache dries quickly, is non-toxic and inexpensive. Multiple international award winner Aljoscha Blau shares his many years of experience in this book, offers shopping and material recommendations, tips for swift success, suggestions on composition, tools and work steps. And he spices it all up with his own illustrations, which are both an incentive – and a feast.
