Stoneground’s Gouache ~ 6 palette contains a versatile combination of colours perfect for capturing a variety of subject matter including landscapes, still life work, botanicals, and illustration work. Combine Raw Umber Dark Neutral and Ultramarine Blue for deep shadows, or mix Naphthol Red and Hansa Yellow for brilliant orange hues at home in autumn landscapes. Cedar Leaf is a vibrant deep green, and a custom colour created in consultation with our in-house artists. Tint any of the above colours with Titanium White for pastel hues and highlights.
Gouache is a water-based media that dries to an opaque, matte finish. Colours can be applied in layers, artists refining and defining their painting as they work. Gouache can be diluted with water and used inwet-in-wet applications in the same manner as watercolour, however the chalk content in gouache means it won’t bloom like watercolour. Gouache is lightened by adding white and can be layered from dark to light due to its opaque nature. Colours are easily mixed with one another and can be used interchangeably with Stoneground watercolour paint.
Our Gouache ~ 6 palette contains six half pans of our handmade gouache in a hinged metal tin. Measuring approximately 2 1/2” x 2”, this compact size is ideal for travel and plein air painting.
