October Musing: Paint along with me and lets talk about stepping on the brakes.

Updated: Jan 8, 2020

Hi my lovelies,


Not a blog this month but a Vlog.


This is one of the paintings we made in class this month and here you can see step by step how I created it.





In our watercolour painting workshops we paint a set of gouache paintings and the techniques we use are the same as what is displayed in this video.


Painting with Gouache is lots of fun. You can dilute and blend the colours with water in the same way as you can with traditional watercolours but you and also go opaque and use the paint to layer.


in our creative classes we do both!


Have a look at the video and please leave any thoughts or ideas in the comments!


love, Irene
