Beginner Plein Air with Gouache

Beginner Plein Air with Gouache

This four day workshop in the studio (with some exercises outside) is designed to help new painters become familiar with gouache, a fantastic portable medium for plein air. Students will start small and learn the principles of plein air painting in an accessible step-by-step format. Gouache techniques covered will include color mixing, washes and application basics. Students will also learn how to approach plein air—how to see a scene, how to simplify, and how to capture it in paint. Composition, values and color concepts will be discussed and practiced in building lessons. The main goal of this workshop is to develop the skills and confidence needed for new painters to get out to paint and more importantly, enjoy the process! www.juddmercer.com
