Gouache blogpost for papier direkt

Papier direkt is an online shop for high quality papers. They have an amazing blog with lots of interesting interviews, color palettes and of course nice papers. They approached me and asked me to write a guest blogpost for them about Gouache, which I gladly did. You can read the entire article here ( it’s in german ).

I divided the article into five chapters: Drawing with gouache / Lettering with Gouache / small letterings with gouache / patterns with gouache and realistic painting with gouache, all on toned and natural papers from papier direkt. Toned papers are definitely my to go to papers for Gouache artwork, as you can also see here. To illustrate the five chapters of the gouache blogpost, I painted quite a lot. Since it was fall, topics like mushrooms and acorns had to be part of this no matter what. There are also a few drawing timelapses on instagram you shouldn’t miss, like this reel for example.

This project was a lot of fun, painting mushrooms with gouache on toned paper. Three favorite things all together. Big thanks to the papier direkt team.
