“Learning About Gouache” with Beth Drucker
Come to our workshop and learn about the water-based media Gouache. It’s been used for centuries, by many well-known Artists. It is similar to watercolor in that it can be re-wetted and dried to a matte finish, and the paint can become infused into its paper support. But gouache can give your work dense matte coverage as well as transparent and translucent surfaces just like watercolor.
It is used most consistently by commercial artists for posters, illustrations, comics, and other design work. It is similar to acrylic or oil paints in that it is normally used in an opaque painting style, and it can form a superficial layer. It’s super versatile!
Enjoy learning how to use it both ways, as well as combining techniques to give you a beautiful range of color and pigment density.
