Book Review: The Art of Gouache by Viktorija Semjonova

The Art of Gouache by Viktorija Semjonova - 01


Viktorija Semjonova is an artist based in Norway who works primarily with gouache as well as digitally. You can see more of her art on her Instagram page.

The Art of Gouache is a 160-page paperback beginner's guide to painting with gouache. The first few pages cover the basics such as the tools you'll need, techniques and colour mixing. The book then goes into 20 step by step painting tutorials.

The painting exercises are fun and easy to follow along. Instructions are clear and concise. There are pictures for each step of the process. All the colours and materials needed are listed. And there's even an estimate of how much time you'll need to complete the exercises. You'll get to draw a huge variety of subjects. There are also some mixed media projects that involve coloured pencils and creating cutout collages.

This hands-on and fun way to learn will quickly get you up to speed with gouache. There's no better way to learn by painting along and getting your hands dirty. This is a wonderful book I can recommend easily to beginners.

The Art of Gouache is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | AU | JP | CN) and Book Depository
