 coffee, not to gouache. (Do you know about gouache? It's a type of paint beloved by many illustrators for its high pigmentation and the cool matte quality that it can produce.)

Personally, although I enjoy admiring others' gouache illustrations, I don't love working with the medium. When I want flat panels of color like you see in my coffee painting above, I prefer to work digitally... less messy, and looks the same. In this illustration, I used both gouache and digital color.

* It's pronounced [ɡwaʃ]. Fun to say! Rhymes with "wash"!
