Beginner Gouache for Plein Air- workshop


Instructor: Judd Mercer
– Ages: Adults

9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Friday, Saturday, Sunday –
September 16, 17, 18 – $425.

Bring to Class:

-Water media sketchbook such as a Strathmore

-Mixed Media or Moleskine Watercolor Sketch-

book or a Ringed Sketchbook. If you prefer, you

can also bring illustration board panels cut down

to a manageable size (8×10, 5×7) or a watercolor

paper block.

-Watercolor or portable palette. Something small

with 8-10 wells. A pochade box will work as well

if you have one.

=Masking tape

=Small mister spray bottle

=Gouache: Any standard 12 color set and we can

work with that, or you can mimic my palette

(below). Student grade is ok for this class, but try

to avoid acrylic gouache as it dries too fast. I

prefer Holbein but any brand will do.

Yellow Ochre

Cadmium Yellow Deep

Alizarin Crimson

Iris (or Dioxazine Purple or anything

Violet, optional)

Burnt Sienna

Burnt Umber

French Ultramarine

bright green, optional)

A large tube of Permanent White

-Brushes – Cheap is ok! Go for something


-Square/Flat/Brights (1”, 3⁄4”, 1⁄2”, 1/4”

these will be our primary brushes)

-Rounds (A good mix of sizes 8-2)

-Water container

-Graphite pencils, eraser

-Red-orange colored pencil (optional)

-Photo references (actual photos or tablet)


We will try to paint outside on the last day so if

you have plein air gear, feel free to bring it, but

it’s not required. Judd will also demonstrate a
