Gouache Workshop with Denise Durkin (Saturday)

Discover the versatility of this water based media used since antiquity. Explore Gouache's range and practical techniques on different tinted grounds and papers with an added adventure in the use of classic graphic equipment from bow pens, flexi and French curves. If you like the versatility of soft pastels, the texture of oils and the freshness of watercolour you will respond to gouache. In this one day workshop we explore Gouache's ease of use and full range of effective applications. A Saturday workshop, techniques in the morning and experimentation with guidance in the afternoon.
