Gouache is a watercolor paint that is opaque rather than transparent. This gives gouache more functional latitude than pure watercolor, and has more in common with acrylic or oil paints in some ways. In Paquette’s signature format for gouache painting, these works are all remarkably small, usually no more than two to four inches in any direction. The story behind these small works – as well as the history of gouache itself – is told in the essay by curator and art historian Sally E. Mansfield in the book, Thomas Paquette | Gouaches. (Includes gouaches from 1991-2006.) Buy it on Amazon or Eyeful Press.
Most gouaches shown here are in the collection of the artist or collectors; a few are available for sale.
