Painting with gouache

Watercolor is the medium I use most often for my illustrated journals and for painting "en plein air" -- that is, painting outdoors -- but often I want to paint in a less delicate, more robust style. Lately, what does that for me is gouache, an opaque watercolor. Here's a little scene along Minnesota's Gunflint Trail, created in gouache on museum board.
