Figure Painting with Gouache with Kate Worm
Workshop Supply List
Learn to create beautiful figure paintings using gouache and watercolor. Working with a clothed model and personal photographs class members will paint with gouache and watercolor in an opaque manner, not in a traditional transparent watercolor way. (Gouache is a watercolor with added chalk to make the paint opaque.) This approach is contemporary using rollers, stencils and scrapers to layer paint. Strong composition, good drawing and beautiful color harmonies will be emphasized. All ability levels are welcome. Please see www.kateworm.com for examples of Kate’s paintings.
