This workshop is designed to introduce students to the unique characteristics of painting with gouache. Starting in the studio, Cynthia will demonstrate  and share techniques unique to this versatile medium. Weather permitting, we will work on location to capture the light in the New Mexico landscape and return to work in the studio to complete work started in the field. Gouache is a perfect medium for plein aire painting with fast drying times. Basically an opaque watercolor, gouache acts very differently from oils or acrylics. It is not a difficult medium and that simplicity makes it exciting to work with. Students will be encouraged to paint in smaller formats with the goal of completing two pieces each day. Color characteristics of gouache will be studied and developed thoughout the workshop. The emphasis will be on learning, having fun, and developing skills to paint with this incredible medium. Each day will start with a short discussion and demo, then students will paint for the remainder of the class with one on one instruction from Cynthia. We will wind up the workshop back in the studio to view our week's worth of painting! Amazing!

Please sign up early: class size is limited.
