About This Class

b9f582af

In this class, you will learn to paint cozy mittens with gouache and pencil crayon (that's Canadian for colored pencils!). Mittens offer a simple canvas to experiment with gouache and explore methods for creating texture with pencil crayons.

In this class, I will take you through my process, including sketching a mitten (and transferring the sketch to watercolour paper), using gouache to paint your mittens with texture, and adding pencil crayon to create even more character in your finished painting. Together we'll explore techniques for creating soft, ribbed, and patterned textures with pencil crayons and gouache.


Your final project may include: 

Sketches
Test Swatches of Pencil Crayon Textures
Finished paintings
Notes on your process and what inspired you!
