About this course
Welcome to watercolors!
Well, specifically __gouache.
I’ve been teaching gouache fashion illustration for creatives and designers at Parsons School of Design for over 25 years.
But this isn’t a fashion illustration class, even though you will get a print design tutorial as a bonus video after the painting masterclass....
This class shows you how gouache is a more opaque form of watercolor media.
It’s so great for fashion and prints because it’s so creamy, velvety, and rich.....
It has a fabric-like quality, especially when you use it on a special kind of paper called Bristol Vellum.
What’s THAT ????
That’s why you’re here.
Let’s break down the nitty -gritties and get down to what you need to know to start. and succeed, in exploring and embodying the techniques to enjoy this fabulous medium for a lifetime of enjoyment.
You'll a good foundation can increase your confidence and give you a framework that you always refer back to in your process.
This class is to get you on your way with vocabulary, basic principles and tools- Not only for designers!
And not only for watercolor,
But for art:
Let's use words like
composition, depth, saturation of color. Visual effects and foundations of color and design will also be discussed.
Because all of my courses are like that—multifaceted experiences
A journey that brings together
technique, analysis, heart soul and spirit, message and imaginiation,
all roll it up into one, just like we do when we engage in this work!
I can’t wait to see you on the other side and answer your questions and see you sharing your discoveries and questions!
