Overview:

Join Kit for this unique one day workshop designed to demystify the wonderful medium that gouache is when used to paint atmospheric and colourful landscapes or even flower paintings. Kit will be demonstrating through-out the day and sharing a few useful tricks of the trade to help you along, while also offering ample one-to-one tuition.

Who should attend?

This workshop will suit both beginners and the more experienced painters, who have not tried gouache. The medium is very versatile, with the water soluble advantages of watercolour and the ability to paint over colours with white tone to add texture and light

What to bring:

Your own reference materials (sketches, landscape photographs), would be best. However, Kit will bring some spare source images for the demonstration painting, with additional photographs of landscapes and flowers which you are welcome to use (the studio also has a larger collection of copyright free images)

  • Gouache paints – Kit uses Windsor & Newton™ Designers Gouache, but other makes are fine, as long as they’re ‘artist quality’
  • Basic colours: Titanium White, Zinc White, French Ultramarine, Cobalt Blue, Burnt Umber, Flame Red, Yellow Ochre, Alizarin Crimson, Viridian, plus additional colours if you have them: Spectrum Red, Raw Sienna, Windsor Green and Madder Carmine will provide a very good range
  • Soft Pastels (small selection) optional & Fixative
  • 2B Pencil and kitchen towel
  • Brushes – a good selection of watercolour brushes, preferably sable/synthetic mix, as gouache pigment is more abrasive and destructive than watercolour
  • Supports – Watercolour paper, preferably ‘NOT’ surface 300gsm/140lb (stretched on a board if possible, but Kit will demonstrate a quick way to do this, if necessary) or Mount board (the studio keeps a limited range available free of charge)
  • Kitchen roll
  • Masking tape
  • Apron

Note: The studio will supply easels, drawing boards and water pots

Meals:
Tea, coffee & biscuits supplied, but please bring a packed lunch
