You can paint with gouache on paper, but it is recommended that you use a heavy paper instead of a light paper. Heavy paper is recommended such as paper used for watercolor painting. You can choose either a white paper or a tinted paper and hot or cold press watercolor paper. A hot press watercolor paper has been rolled very smooth and a cold press watercolor paper has a texture. What type you choose is entirely up to you.
I am a begining oil painter. I was wondering what colors you suggest a beginer buy. I`ve heard students in my classes talking about how they use only a few "basic" colors, in which they can mix a large range of colors from. Do you have any tips?
