About This Class

In this class, I’m going to show you how to paint a floral arrangement with gouache.
Gouache paint is very similar to watercolor, but more opaque, easy to handle, and it has a lovely texture. I f you like watercolors, give gouache a try!

I’ll show you the basics you need to know for painting with gouache, how to choose a great color palette, how to draw and paint different kinds of flowers, different ways to arrange your florals in a design. At the end, you’ll create your project with your own flower arrangement.

You'll need a few small brushes, decent paper and a few gouache paints (in tubes) for this class. If you have experience with painting in watercolor, great, but it's not needed.
