gouache (technique) (watercolor painting (technique), <painting techniques by medium>, ... Processes and Techniques (hierarchy name))

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Een schildermethode waarin gebruik wordt gemaakt van een matte, ondoorzichtige waterverf. Bij gouache worden ondoorzichtige kleurlagen toegepast, in tegenstelling tot de transparante smeren van de aquareltechniek; dit verschil komt voort uit de verschillende pigmentdichtheden van deze media.
