Instructor: Michelle Barkway
On my gouache! Ready to try something new? Gouache (pronounced ghu-wash) paintings have a distinctly saturated, matte appearance letting them stand out from a crowd. Similiar to water colour paints, gouache is fun to learn.
This workshop is a perfect for all skill and experience levels. Beginners and non-painters are encouraged to join. You’ll be learning and experimenting in a fun, low stress environment.
In this workshop you’ll learn:
- Gouache basics – what is it? How is it used?
- Colour theory and mixing – a chance to play with colour and paint
- Landscape composition basics
- Layering techniques
If time permits Michelle will also have acrylic gouache to experiment with as well.
Participants can work step-by-step through a seascape with Michelle, or may choose their own subject/composition. There will be a plenty of time to experiment and play with the gouache before moving on to our final piece. You’ll leave with at least one finished 8 X 10 painting on paper and a stack of colourful experiments to proudly share with family and friends.
All supplies will be supplied by the instructor and will include:
- Gouache paint
- Paint palettes
- Mixed media paper
- Pencils and erasers
