This class is all about painting autumn forests. I'll share my process for doing the initial value sketch as well as full walkthrough of each of these studies. In Episode 2 I will share my process for painting these autumn forest scenes while I discuss the following things:

  • Value sketches
  • Layering gouache
  • Creating a variety of forest textures
  • Lighting (front lit vs. overcast) in the forest


  • 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)

About This Series

Gouache Landscapes is a series of classes that offers real time instruction for how to paint a variety of landscapes with gouache. Each class is 60 minutes or less so you can fit it into your busy schedule. I show you my techniques, talk about tips for getting the most out of your gouache, and talk about my own struggles and how I overcome them. There is no specific upload schedule, but my plan is to release them every 2-3 weeks.
