Hi, I'm Romica Spiegl-Jones of Romica Jones Design, I'm a graphic designer and Illustrator based in Manchester and I love to use Gouache for my Illustrations - so much that I decided to share and teach about it. My 3 gouache courses have over 1600 enrolled students on Skillshare - but here you will get much more in-depth goodness.


Think of it like opaque watercolour. It is a beautiful medium and it has been used by Illustrators way before the computer was part of our lives. It's vibrancy and opacity are appreciated by many and if you have tried water colours or acrylics before - Gouache is the perfect combination of both worlds.


Gouache is a brilliant, completely underestimated medium and it can be tricky and time consuming to find good classes and information.

I have researched and tested all the methods and information you will find in this class - no need for you to waste any more time. This course is perfect for busy bees who want clear to the point instructions when learning a new skill. Furthermore, if you enrol for "Option B: Special Bundle" you will also receive 1 E-Mail of personal feedback and access to our exclusive facebook group. I care about your creative development and write feedback that is uplifting and constructive. You can feel safe and share without judgement.
