Mindy Lacefield

Hi! My name is Mindy and I am inspired and paint from the nostalgia of my childhood. Channeling my inner 8 year old. Painting my dreams into reality. I teach. I learn. I play. I make mistakes. I celebrate those mistakes because they become happy, magical moments from the Divine.

About this course

***NOTE: this is ala carte group of projects that is a part of Watercolor play and discover. Please do NOT sign up if you are in that class.

Have you ever wanted to try Gouache ?? It is similar to watercolor but it is opaque and reactivates with water. To me, working with gouache after you have had some watercolor experience will make more sense. I have tried gouache before but it was when I jumped directly from acrylic. I just didn't get it until I started working with watercolor. I would love if you joined me for this exploration into Gouache!
