Gouache is a wonderful medium which can create rich, matte effects. This workshop will focus on the instructor’s method of using gouache to paint a Southern Magnolia Seedpod. Some experience with watercolor is needed and will be helpful in transitioning to gouache. Students with experience using gouache are also welcome. We will be using gouache in a similar manner to watercolor for the first few layers of washes. We will then transition to dry brush and use semi-opaque paint.


  • Participants will be provided with a pre-recorded video demonstration which will prepare them for the class, as well as a material list, syllabus, photo of the subject, line drawing of the subject, color mixes, and handouts.
  • The workshop will take place live on Zoom both days from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. with a 30 minute break. The instructor will be available to answer questions and advise students.
  • Students will send their work in progress via text to the instructor as they progress.
