Mixing mediums of watercolor, gouache, and watercolor inks has been a new adventure of mine and it's so invigorating! It's been a bit of a learning curve (honestly I'm still learning about it!) but if you're interested in experimenting with these mediums, I want to help you get started by answering questions like:

  • What are the main differences between each medium?
  • When should I use what?
  • Can I use all three?!?!
