Artist Gouache

 

 

Melanie Cambridge® Artist Gouache

.......A Real Alternative to Oil Colour

New for 2017 is my range of Artist Gouache colours. Having used gouache last year for the first time, I am completely hooked! The vibrancy of the colours; the fact that they do not fade as they dry like watercolour; being able to mix with "Artists' Putty" to create impasto effects, makes gouache extremely flexible and the best alternative to Oil Colour I can find. Take a look at my introductory video to see the colours and my exclusive, Artists Putty in action.

Why Paint with Melanie Cambridge® Artist Gouache?
Whilst there are various ranges already on the market, my gouache has extremely high pigment content - meaning a little will go a long way as well as enabling artist to work with some of the most vibrant colours available. Some colours in the range, such as my beautiful "Cambridge Pink" are exclusive colours you will not find elsewhere and yet all at a reasonable price for such good quality artist colours.

What other professionals say about Melanie Cambridge® Artist Gouache.

I attach a few more paintings after trialing the new gouache tubes of Burnt Umber and Ultramarine Deep. I found the new darker Ultramarine much better for getting darks. As you can see I have been able to get good rich darks using these colours, which is what I want to be able to get. The first two paintings have been painted on mount board with gesso. The final painting of the canal boats has been painted on 140lb Bockingford Not watercolour paper.

The only colours I would now like to see in your set would be an Alizarin  and Lemon Yellow.

It was a pleasure to use these paints and they re wetted very well. I wish you well with your venture.
