Tuition - The Art of Gouache with Jeremy Ford

Gouache is a versatile and very forgiving medium that can produce varied and creative results. However, it is often overlooked. This thorough DVD puts that right and Jeremy provides as complete an introduction as you could wish for.

From an explanation of what the medium is (opaque watercolour), via an examination of materials and techniques, he introduces a wide variety of styles and subjects that showcase what gouache is capable of. Projects within the book include landscapes, flowers, animals and people and there are exercises and demonstrations throughout; whilst the DVD contains 2 main projects – a woodland scene and a ‘poster style’ landscape of a boat on Ullswater.

Best of all, as well as a technical reference, Jeremy is at pains to emphasise the creative possibilities at every turn. You’ll learn methods of application, but to achieve a result rather than as an end in themselves. Jeremy is a patient and confident teacher and it’s impossible not to be enthused by the results he produces here.

If gouache is a medium you’ve been wanting to explore, this DVD gives you everything you need. If it’s something new to you, this is the time to dive in…

70 minutes.

Please note that while this is a Region 0 DVD, it is PAL formatted and therefore unlikely to play in North America, Japan, South Korea and some of the Pacific Islands.

However, all DVDs will play on personal computers and laptops.
