Discover the unique velvety quality of gouache paint in this 3-week virtual class. Similar to watercolor, gouache paint requires mixing with water when applied to a paper surface, yet offers a distinctive opacity and chalky finish. Learn to manipulate this medium and apply a variety of techniques to the finished work including color mixing, the proper use of materials, how to lay in your drawing, understanding tonal value, and more. This class is designed for the intermediate painter, or beginners with some limited experience with any painting medium. Advanced painters may also enjoy painting in this medium for the ease it allows during plein air painting and quick clean-up.
