Get Up & Gouache by artist and author Jessica Smith (Twitter | IG) is a beginner's guide to painting with gouache that wants to get you painting quickly.
The book devotes a few pages to essential painting techniques and quickly jumps into 20 step-by-step tutorials that you can follow along. The examples look beautiful and are simple enough to follow. The instructions are clear and concise. There are pictures that show you exactly how to proceed and there are also names of the colours to use.
This is a very hands-on and practical book. Nothing beats learning by practicing. Highly recommended to all gouache beginners.
