About This Class

In this class, I'll be taking you through my process of painting with gouache. You'll be painting your own version of what you choose to pick up as inspiration by observing various details and adding your own tweaks to them.

Focus on the beauty of imperfections that this medium lets you incorporate and enjoy the process while you splatter the paint and play with different shades of colors and painting styles. As you move forward, you'll see how absolutely fun, versatile and forgiving this medium is.

Can't wait to see your projects!
