Posted on Updated on

The Panama Hat copy

Monday 11th & Tuesday 12th June, 10am – 4pm


Learn the different ways that gouache can be used, including quick watercolour-style paintings and mixed media compositions.

Gouache is similar to watercolour but it is an opaque painting medium. Its quick coverage means that gouache lends itself to a much more direct painting technique than watercolour. 

It is a more controllable medium that allows mistakes to be repainted. An ideal medium for small, detailed paintings.
