Gouache is a wonderfully adaptable water-soluble paint which can be applied thinly like watercolour, but can also be used more thickly to cover previous layers. Perfectly mixable with watercolours. No experience necessary! Using reference from outside and working on-site wherever possible, we can develop sketches and ideas in the studio as well as work from people’s tablets and photographs. Step-by-step demonstrations throughout and particular focus on matching colours to those in nature, with plenty of opportunity to experiment.
