Miniature Flower Study — Gouache Painting — Workshop with artist Jo Reitze.
The session will give participants experience working in gouache (opaque watercolour) sometimes referred to as designer colour.
This is a forgiving medium and relies less on accidental effects than traditional watercolour. It is an ideal medium for travelling. The strong tonal contrasts of oil can be achieved without the mess as it is water-based. A post card sized flower study will be completed in the session.
Materials list will be supplied to you prior to the workshop.
Jo is an accomplished oil and gouache teacher who has recently been shortlisted for the Eastbourne Prize and a Fellow of the Victorian Artists Society and president of the Melbourne Society of Women Painters and Sculptors. She coordinated art at Canterbury girls for twenty years. Once she retired she started the “Paint Your Garden” project.
