Learn all the tricks to painting with this easy and beautiful medium that can be applied like oils/acrylic or watercolor. Gouache is great for preliminary studies for a painting, and especially for sketching while travelling because of its portability. Rooney will show you techniques like wet into wet, wet onto dry, washes similar to watercolor, fading, scumbling, pen/ink/wash method, and more. This class is sure to fill up quickly so sign up today!

Gouache Suggested Material List

VERY IMPORTANT!!!!  I suggest that you do a small painting as a dry run before the workshop to see if you’re missing anything you might need.

This list is what I use but if you’re an experienced painter, bring what you like the best, and feel free to substitute.

Note: I'm now using acrylics along with gouache, so if you want to use my method, in addition to gouache bring the same colors in acrylic.

Tubes of Gouache paint:

Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson or Magenta

Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Sap Green, Dioxine Purple, Orange, larger tube of White.

If you don’t have a Pochade box bring a palette made of wood, glass or plastic to mix the paint on.

Pad of 9x12”(ish) multimedia paper

#2 or 4b pencil and erasure.  I like Artgum erasers. 

Fine point Sharpie or other permanent marker. Note: should not dissolve if water is put on it.

Brushes- synthetic acrylic (or watercolor) brushes Liquitex Freestyles (my personal faves), Princeton 6300’s or Silver Bristlon (or your own favorites) in smaller AND larger sizes. Also need a synthetic Liner (also called a Rigger) brush. It is thin and has very long hairs (for detail work)

Liquin Medium- a fast dry oil based alkyd for varnishing the finished painting.

Small painting knife in a teardrop shape

Smart phone with pictures of subjects you like to paint--if you don’t have a smart phone, bring photos (from magazines or one’s you took)

Bring photos with good light and shadow pattern (stark difference between what’s being struck by the light and what’s in shadow). No overcast or cloudy pics.

Water container to wash out brushes in

Water mister

Blue painters tape

Paper towels or rags
