Gouache Landscapes: Episode 3 - Waterfall
(Also available on Skillshare)
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)
