(Samples and details of paintings)

My medium of choice is gouache (say "gwash").  Simply put, it is an opaque water that adheres to the surface of the painting ground, as opposed to watercolor which is transparent and more of a stain.  I prefer gouache because it allows me to more easily manipulate the surface, sanding, scraping, even finger painting.  For me, it is the "older, brawny brother to the more sensitive watercolor".
