Painting From Nature

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Gouache is opaque watercolour yielding rich velvety surfaces that can be used onto black and toned paper. It is a versatile medium that can be used in conjunction with other drawing and painting media, and is a great portable paint to have with you when travelling. We will paint from natural objects brought into the studio, which is a very relaxing way to connect with the natural world. A variety of gouache painting techniques will be explored using an assortment of brushes and we will work with specific colour palettes to achieve harmonious colour effects. This course is suitable for beginners and more experienced students as each person will be attended to individually.
