What is Gouache?
Gouache (opaque watercolor) is a versatile and forgiving paint, perfect for sketching in the studio, painting outdoors, and creating finished paintings. In the past, Gouache was used only by illustrators and designers, but a lot of prominent contemporary artists are picking it up again. It's becoming very popular among Plein Air artists because it's a lightweight and easy material for working outdoors.
This water-based medium can be used to create flowing watercolor looks as well as bold, painterly images. Instructor Kim T. Richards fell in love with gouache in college and has been using it ever since.
Kim will share with you the tricks and techniques she has developed from her many years of experience with this medium. In this class, you will learn the pros and cons of the various brands of paint, supplies, and techniques.
After taking this class, you will have all the information you need to start creating your own work with gouache. This class is appropriate for beginner painters as well as experienced painters ready to try a new medium.
