Hi Friends! It’s beed a while since I posted a painting video and recently I got a request on my Instagram account to create a more detailed gouache tutorial. And I jumped right on it!
In the past few months I became a big fan of quick (1-2 hour) gouache landscape because they let me practice the same techniques I use in oils and in addition, since gouaches are fast drying, they challenge me to work fast. I’ve already uploaded a few timelapses to my Youtube channel, but always wanted to make a more detailed tutorial with the step by step explanations of my process.
You can sit back and relax or paint along with me (the reference image will be linked below). I welcome any questions or video recommendations. Enjoy!
