Gouache is a unique medium that combines rich opaque paintings with the ease of cleaning up with water. In this workshop you will learn how to use traditional gouache to develop or improve your daily painting habit by simplifying the landscape on small supports. Get ready to use a big brush, paint small, and simplify everything from supplies to set up, to shapes and more. Source imagery provided by Patti.
Painting began as a means of surrounding myself with oil paintings. Adult education classes and workshops were eye openers, but I was missing the fundamentals. True joy came after being afforded the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Art. Never had I worked so hard or enjoyed learning so much. It was so unlike earning my BSN. Drawing became a foundation and daily passion. Oil painting and relief printmaking became studio practices. Earning a BFA sparked a seemingly endless quest to see great art and motivation to create art daily. My studio practice includes oil, gouache, relief printmaking, drawing, and teaching. Gouache is my daily en plein air medium of choice.
