Gouache is essentially a form of opaque watercolour. It’s a fun and versatile water-based painting medium that is well suited for all types of subject matter.
Gouache dries more quickly than watercolour and can be used opaquely to work from dark to light, like oil. The opaque nature of the paint allows for easy corrections and changes in the course of painting. Gouache dries to a beautiful matte finish that has its own unique character.
Lead by Pilar de la Torre, during the workshop we will explore:
- the material properties
- how to effectively mix colour and values
- how to communicate form and suggest texture
- create depth and atmosphere with gouache
Basic materials are provided in the cost of each workshop. Students are welcome to bring their own if preferred.
