Try ex­per­i­ment­ing with paper types

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

I like paint­ing on many dif­fer­ent types of paper. It re­ally pushed me to con­trol gouache as a medium when I first started us­ing it. The thin mole­sk­ine sketch­book paper forces you to ap­ply the paint rather thick and dry, while Can­son art board has an ab­sorbent sur­face and en­ables you to layer the paint. Toothy wa­ter­colour paper suits a dry brush tech­nique, which cre­ates in­ter­est­ing tex­tures. You can learn all types of gouache ap­pli­ca­tion just by paint­ing on dif­fer­ent paper sur­faces.
