ILLUSTRATIVE PORTRAIT PAINTING
Portrait and Pet Painting with Gouache
The workshop will be led by Yvonne Stewart of ‘Coramantic’. Based in Balmullo, Yvonne creates quirky playful illustrations in soft bright colours. In this 4 hour workshop you will create a portrait of a person or an animal or pet using gouache. Gouache is a type of paint that shares characteristics of both watercolour and acrylic. Here you will learn the basics of painting with this media and be taught portrait painting techniques, then apply your skills in creating a final portrait. Students will make experimental sheets to begin, familiarizing themselves with gouache. Final artwork will be presented in a cello bag with backing board and a certificate about the artwork for them to take home.
Materials will be provided but please bring along any photos you might like to work from. Remember your packed lunch! Tea, coffee, juice and biscuits available at the Centre.
