Welcome to Gouache for Illustrators - a gouache class for beginners
:) yes, if you can hold a paint brush, this class is for you
WHAT IS GOUACHE?
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. Type in gouache on Instagram etc. and you'll be amazed of how many illustrators and artists are re-discovering this awesome medium.
SO, WHO ARE YOU? MY STORY
Hi, I'm Romica Spiegl-Jones of Romica Jones Design, I'm an illustrator and designer based in Manchester and I love gouache - but I really struggled with it when starting out. I loved the results others were getting, but I just didn't know what the heck I was doing with this paint and got frustrated. Either it was too thick, or the paper soaked everything up, and I felt overwhelmed with all the different choices of paints, you name it. Can you relate?
DON'T GIVE UP
However, I'm not a quitter so I started researching, testing, and experimenting. I tried to find books and classes but nothing really satisfied me. Either resources were only for advanced painters or the classes were hours and hours of long-winded instructions - and ain't nobody got time for that.
THERE NEEDS TO BE A BETTER WAY
I decided there needs to be a better way for beginners. I don't want you or others to start with the same frustration and give up gouache altogether. I don't want you to waste the money and time I did when experimenting with papers and paints that were completely unsuitable for the project I used them for.
WHAT I WANT FOR YOU
What I do want you to have is the same joy that this beautiful and versatile medium has in store for those of you who know what they are doing. And that's why I created this compact course for beginners - so you can stop searching, and start painting!
HELP IS AT HAND
The wonderful characteristics of gouache + the difficulty of finding high quality resources inspired me to finally share my knowledge I've acquired through long hours, and months of testing. All this knowledge can now be found in my class "Gouache for Illustrators". My 3 gouache courses have over 2000 enrolled students on Skillshare - but here you will get much more in-depth goodness.

"I highly recommend this class on painting and sketching. Not only did I learn more about the medium itself, but I learned about how to push through those rocky times when your painting is a little "meh" and to try again. That it is ok to go through the growing pains. Romica is an excellent teacher who knows her craft well. Thank you for putting this class together for us aspiring painters!"
