Whether you've been on a watercolor journey for years, or are just starting out, this is an outstanding two-day adventure into watercolor gouache that you don't want to miss. We'll be studying from Emma Block's book, Get Started with Gouache (mandatory book purchase to enroll). A minimum of 8 exercises are planned (4 each day), but my hopes are to tackle 12 of Emma's delightful illustrations. Several of them are just fabulous "warm-up" activities, and you'll find yourself inspired to paint everything around you in soft pastels! Any gouache set will work, as Emma covers basic color mixes options for each painting, however I will be using the SUI gouache set, available on Amazon.
