Gouache Workshop

This opaque watercolor technique spread in Europe in the 14th century to depict landscapes with fine details. In modern times it is used for posters, illustrations, and comics. It differs from traditional watercolors with its total hiding power. Beginners experiment on simple modern paintings; more advanced students learn the 18th century technique used for the Neapolitian seascapes where the first layer (sky and sea) is very watery and anything else is painted on top in thick colors. Materials list provided.
