Layering color and playing with shapes
There are so many reasons to fall in love with gouache. Hallmark Illustrator Mirna S. can tell you about all of them. “It can be brushy and watery, or super-graphic,” she tells us. “You can control the vibrancy—it can be really brilliant. I can do any kind of illustration with gouache.” We asked her to talk us through her recent workshop using this medium. But first, we asked how to pronounce it: “Gwash,” as it turns out.
