with G Caruso

Discover the quiet pleasure of sitting in nature and painting. In this workshop G Caruso will share their favorite spots in Berlin for painting, introduce you to beloved trees and views and share with you their knowledge of gouache. Through step by step detailed demos and individualized feedback and tutoring, you will learn a useful skill for painting on location and some good tricks to render landscapes, plants and trees efficiently and expressively. 

Gouache is a painting medium very close to watercolor, in fact if you already have a watercolor palette, you just need to buy a tube of white and you’re ready to go! The difference between gouache and watercolor is mainly the fact that gouache is opaque and allows more rework and layering than the unforgiving watercolor. Gouache could be a comforting interlude before getting back to your watercolor practice or a valuable tool for creating studies for future oil or acrylic paintings.
