In episode three, I’ll show you how I paint this waterfall using gouache a little differently (more like watercolor). Gouache is incredibly versatile, and I rarely use one single method while painting landscapes. This class shows you how I dilute the gouache in order to approach the painting from a watercolor mindset.

In this class, I will demonstrate:

  • The sketch process
  • Diluting the gouache
  • Negative painting & adding thick details
  • Achieving a painterly style


  • Winsor & Newton Gouache
  • Seawhite of Brighton Watercolor Sketchbook


  • Zinc white
  • Cadmium free lemon yellow
  • Permanent alizarin crimson
  • Burnt Sienna (barely used)
  • Prussian Blue
  • Perylene Black (which is a SUPER dark green)
