Gouache Painting 1W20
Working from observation, explore painting with gouache on panel. This non-toxic, opaque watercolor provides rich, matte color that can be used in a range of applications from thin and semi-transparent to many semi-opaque or opaque layers. Start by composing a still life with thumbnail sketches, then apply layers one by one to achieve a glowing, beautiful result.
This class meets at Eliot School Annex, 253 Amory St., Jamaica Plain.
