In this workshop students will gain knowledge of gouache painting. Gouache is an opaque watercolor, with forgiving tendencies. Students will enjoy a relaxing day painting reference pictures that will be supplied. There will be several demonstrations and plenty of individual attention to assist everyone. Students will be encouraged to creatively conceive in the light of their individual belief, rather than copy a picture, adding to the imagination and unique nature of the work they produce. This medium will be painted on a small format, easily transported for creative travel excursions, for use in a journal or plein air painting. They can also be framed as with any fine art form. The medium is very versatile, used as a watercolor, or opaque acrylic, and realistic interpretation is easily achieved. If you've struggled with watercolor in the past, you may just have found your niche in the creative world of gouache.
Students will learn to interpret a painting creatively from a picture/photo, in their own artistic vision. Instructions will be given in choosing a picture and theme for their painting, basic drawing, paint application, color mixing, high/low lights, overall mood and design of the work. Students will complete one or more works of art in this workshop.
