Gouache with Mike Rooney

$70/55 mbrs. (discounted price will display for members upon login)

Gouache is an amazing medium. Use it with lots of water for washes and that watercolor look. Then use it out of the tube with no water and it’s opaque like oil paint but magically drys like acrylic! Whats not to like?

Mike Rooney will show you how to master this unique and fun medium for journaling, planning paintings and for using it for the final artwork.

More about Mike Rooney.

Dedicated to full time plein air painting, Rooney chooses the outdoors to a comfortable studio. Bugs, bystanders and bad weather are just a few of the inconveniences he endures to capture the colors and nuances of nature and shifting light. His paintings although observed from life, are pared down to colorful recognizable blurs, documenting his sensualist encounter with his surroundings.  He has painted all his life.

Students will receive an extra discount on art supplies from Books & Books @ The Studios if pre-registered for this workshop.
