Purchased, Can't wait to get this in my hands! :D

I have a quick question about how you use watercolour and gouache, do you mix the white qouache into the watercolours or is it only ever used by itself?

Thanks guys! Really appreciate your support.

Shoki - I mix the white gouache in with the watercolor paint, when I want the paint to act more like acrylic/oil. Most of the time I will block things in with pure transparent watercolor, then work back into it, modifying areas with the opaque mixtures that contain the white gouache. The final paintings are always a mix of transparent vs. opaque areas of paint.
