Gouache Portraits with Augustwren



There’s just something about gouache.

The texture, the vibrant colors, the opacity — no wonder it’s a favorite with illustrators and artists everywhere. Stop wondering what to do with those tubes of paint and learn from the best in this encore presentation of our popular sold-out workshop!

Jennifer Orkin Lewis (aka Augustwren) is joining us again to teach you the basics of painting in gouache (opaque watercolor). You’ll quickly apply what you learn, making two colorful portraits..

You’ll turn black and white family photos into beautiful works of art! Whether you’re a beginner or more experienced, you’ll learn Augustwren’s approach to making portraits your own, adding new colors and patterns to reinvent the scene.

This is a live workshop with Q&A throughout the presentation and lifetime access to the recording.
