In this four hour workshop you will paint a bird of your choice using gouache. Gouache is a type of paint which shares characteristics of both watercolour and acrylic. Here you will learn the basics of how to work with this media. You will practice layering gouache and explore mark making techniques then apply these to create feathers and textures within your bird. Students will create experimental sheets to begin with and then paint a final 5 x 7 inch painting. Final artwork will be presented in a cello bag with backing board and a certificate about the artwork for you to take home. Materials will be provided but please bring with you any photos or pictures of birds you would like to work from. This workshop is suitable for beginners or anyone with an interest in painting.
