"James Gurney has put together another wonderful video for beginning student and seasoned professional alike, packed with information and insights. This time he takes on the rarely discussed medium of gouache, handling it with both precision and abandon, taking the mystery and apprehension out of it. As always he offers useful tips with humor and excitement, sharing his experiences with both the medium and the pitfalls and enjoyment of painting outdoors. The sequence with the Brownies is pure painting magic. This video may bring an entirely new audience to the medium. Now we will have to learn how to spell gouache."
