Introduction to Gouache
Gouache, pronounced “goo-ash”, is an incredibly versatile paint sometimes referred to as “opaque watercolour.”
It is water soluble like watercolours but has an opaque finish like acrylics. Gouache has a beautifully vibrant matte finish, and works incredibly well with other mediums such as ink, coloured pencils and watercolours, which makes it such an appealing paint to work with.
During the workshop you will discover the different properties of gouache and learn how to apply the paint using various techniques such as wet-on-wet, dry brush and opaque layering. You will then apply your new creative knowledge and paint your own still life on a gorgeous piece of hot-press paper.
This gouache workshop is designed for beginners and no experience is necessary.
