1-day Workshop: Painting in Gouache (from photo reference)

June 14 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm


Learn best practices and technique for painting in gouache. You are also welcome to paint in another medium in this class, if you’re interested in painting from photo reference but not interested in working with gouache.

I’ll be demonstrating in gouache and will focus on key aspects of the painting process: composition, drawing, color, value and brushwork.

You’ll need to bring a digital image of the painting to class on an iPad and I’ll demonstrate how you’ll go about transferring a drawing of the photo onto your canvas. Please download the app “Jackson’s Art Grid” to your device, which we’ll be using to do that.

I’ll do several demonstrations during the course of the day, followed by each of you working on the next stage of your paintings. I’ll work with you individually, in a hands-on, step-by-step fashion, guiding you from start to finish and focusing on all aspects of the process.

A materials list – including instructions about loading the app onto your iPad – will be sent to you upon registration.

The workshop will be held in my studio at Hunter Point Shipyard, San Francisco and is limited to 7 people.

Cost of workshop: $80. This amount is refundable in full up to 2 weeks prior to the workshop; after that the registration fee is non-refundable but can be transferable.

The fee for students who would like to sign up for a package of 4 workshops to be taken between now and the end of 2018 is $240 ($60.00 per workshop), to be paid in advance of the first one.

Please contact me through the Contact page on this site regarding Registration.
