Before I knew that gouache works best fresh out of the tube, I filled a palette up just as I do with watercolors. Let’s face it, paint ain’t cheap, so I wet these paints over and over. Finally, most of the colors are used up and it is into the sink to soak for now! In the future, fresh paint. That will be a really new event for me because I don’t tend to paint like that. I made swatch cards of all my gouache colors (more than 20, less than 1000), so I plan to use those as I consider paints in future paintings.
