What is a gouache?

What is a gouache?

A watercolor paint that's opaque unlike the usual transparent watercolors. It gives an artist the freedom to paint layers from the light to the dark ones. Gouache is often used for the solid colors when painting. It is a type of paint in the wide category of the water-media that consists of a pigment, binding agent and an inert material designed specifically for use in a method that is opaque.

Readymade

Readymade is the term Marcel Duchamp used to describe his artworks made from objects which were manufactured. The French artist first used the term, and artists who work similarly now use it. Duchamp chose functional objects which he felt had visual indifference.

Interactive art

A form of art where the spectator is involved by the artist to achieve the art's purpose. This can be done by letting the visitor or observer "walk" around, in and on the art installation. Others may ask the spectator or the artist to become part and parcel of their artwork. Works in this category often feature computers, sensors and interfaces to respond to meteorological changes, heat, motion or other input types programmed by the maker to respond to by them.

Limited Edition Print

A limited edition print is one of a number of prints made at the same time from one printmaking plate. A fixed number are made and signed by the artist, indicating the printing order, using the format 1/10, meaning “first of ten prints”.
