Discover the enchanting world of gouache painting in this one-of-a-kind workshop led by nationally renowned artist, David R. Becker. Gouache, a captivating medium known for its opaque and velvety matte finish, offers a realm of possibilities for artists seeking infinite blending and unmatched working time.
During this hands-on workshop, David will demystify the art of gouache and guide participants through its unique techniques and applications. Gouache, a technique that combines watercolors with a gum or an opaque white pigment, allows the colors to rest on the surface of the paper, creating a continuous layer that is both workable and reworkable – a characteristic unlike any other paint.
You will be provided with all the necessary supplies, including high-quality gouache paints and four different substrates, enabling you to explore various surfaces and unleash your creativity. David will share invaluable insights on layering with gouache, using the wet-on-dry method to add intricate details to your artwork.
Embrace the flexibility of gouache as David demonstrates how you can easily modify your designs by simply reactivating the paint with a wet brush, even after it has dried. Mistakes become an opportunity for experimentation, as they can be seamlessly covered up or transformed into captivating visual effects.
Join us for this unique and captivating workshop, where you'll delve into the wonders of gouache painting under the guidance of a skilled artist. Whether you're a seasoned painter or just beginning your artistic journey, this workshop promises to inspire and elevate your artistic prowess. Unleash the potential of gouache and create stunning, expressive artworks that capture the essence of this extraordinary medium.
Note: No prior experience with gouache is required; all skill levels are welcome. Secure your spot today for an artistic adventure like no other!
