What is Gouache?

Gouache is obtained by grinding pigments, gum Arabic and a white filler. Linel is one of the last gouaches to include gum Arabic in its formulas which gives it incomparable quality.
Used for landscapes, models, preparatory sketches. The opacity of the gouache gives it an important quality in painting: light colours can overlap indefinitely with dark colours. It can also be used in overlays of semi-transparent washes, after dilution in water.
