Skye--21--Richmond, VA:
A casual blog of my art, filled with school work, panic, personal art, works in progress and information!

wabagoo asked: I see you're using black gouache! I'm curious, is there any particular reason why you use it rather than straight up ink?


Answer:

Ah, yes, actually! I’ve found that black gouache produces much better results when laying down flat areas of black. If mixed properly and allowed to dry, there aren’t any issues with overlapping brushstrokes/thicknesses of paint.  Also, it isn’t absorbed as much as ink is into the paper because of its composition, leaving a thick opaque layer of pigment on the papers surface. This provides a very solid, matte black that absorbs the most light and is great for pieces that you want a lot of contrast in!! Woo! 
(so for this project, which is a celestial map illustration, it’s perfect ^-^ )
