Of course Colored Pencils are my favorite Gouache - I actually like how it looks better than watercolor Even though watercolor allows layering and blending, Markers - before I ruled them out completely - I'd try them again using a professional artist brand. For future projects, I'll try gouache and colored pencil.
My Frogs now painted in Gouache. This is the first time I have tried gouache.
Dries very quick. You have to paint fast if you want to blend even a little. You can't go over a painted area as it lifts off the paint. Reminded me of the tempera paints we used in school - middle school.
The colors are bright! Next up is Watercolors . . .
