About This Class

0c9ae134

In this class you will learn the basics of gouache ,get to know the medium better and already get started creating a fun floral-culinary themed illustration with them. 

Gouache is a medium most of us have heard of and seen other artists use but quite a few of us still find it a bit elusive. There are so many questions about this medium when you are just starting with it especially about it’s closeness to but also differences from watercolors.

This is my introductory class on gouache as a medium and I will help you explore this medium a bit better. We will discuss supplies, see how it’s similar to watercolor but also how it is different from it. I will teach you how to get started with creating various shades using a basic set of colors, layering and adding details.Following the exploration we will create a fun project with detailed step by step explanations.

As with my other classes I always share my tips and tricks throughout the class.

I really hope that by the end of this class you can no longer wait to get started with this medium.
