Relax with gouache! With Sarah Wimperis

Saturday 16th March

Studio One, Pegasus Art

10am – 4pm All abilities

Join our NEW workshop intended to be an introduction to working with gouache and watercolour. It is also a chance to have fun and exercise the right side of your brain! It is open to all levels of artist from professional to complete beginner. Gouache is an opaque watercolour with its own unique properties. Gouache has the opaque qualities of oil, but it is water based. The water solubility of acrylic, without drying on and ruining brushes. It has the set up ease of watercolour, without such a strong need to plan and reserve whites.

Gouache can transcend the boundaries of many mediums – it is relaxing and you don’t have to worry to much about making a mistake! Sarah will provide images to work from but if you would like to bring your own landscape or gardenscape, then please bring along a reference of your choice.
