Gouache Phase I,II,III : In this phase Jeff Watts introduces you to his second favorite medium after oil: gouache. He will demonstrate this medium using a traditional approach that is rarely taught in contemporary art schools. It will be instrumental to your future growth.
Jeff refers to this technique as “tiling”, but you can think of it as shape recognition painting. This technique emphasizes turning form with deliberate “tiles” placed next to one another to create a mosaic effect. This helps cultivate a greater sense of design and will make for clearer, more deliberate color notes in all of your paintings. One of the greatest qualities of gouache is its ability to be re-activated after it is dry to the touch. No other medium except digital allows for this sort of flexibility. We will be executing two black and white and two Zorn palette paintings, for a total of four painting in this phase. Enjoy.

Now that you have successfully completed the Phase I gouache you can open up your palette some more, to a warm/cool palette. This will allow for a full treatment of color. We will again be working up our paintings through the chain of values, but now we will have a greater opportunity to use a juxtaposition of warm and cool tiles, and to turn our forms with temperature rather than blending.
Speaking of blending, Jeff will also show you various blending methods including the old school airbrush. This technique was instrumental to Jeff’s development, as it will hopefully be to yours.
We will execute two male and two female paintings for a total of 4 in this phase. We will be using gouache for many stages of future phases and painting methods, so really apply yourself during your gouache training.

Painting from the master’s was an instrumental learning tool for Jeff as a student and still plays an important role in his current training regimen. In this phase Jeff picked a few of his favorite illustrators to emulate. Each one possess certain qualities that he feels will help cultivate your design skills, color harmonies, edge manipulation and much more. Watch as Jeff demonstrates numerous portraits in gouache from each of these master illustrators. The verbal will also be very helpful to take in as Jeff Delves into why and how he is influenced but these artists.
