Painting with Gouache en Plein Air feat. Bryan Coombes

Watch as watermedia takes flight! Go on a trip with Bryan Coombes, as he captures seaplanes in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour.

Discover techniques for drawing through your preliminary pencil sketch, using watercolours and gouache to build up a scene, blending gouache to create soft edges, and using watersoluble pens to add the finishing details to your piece. Once you see how easily gouache lends itself to working outdoors, it’ll become your new favourite travel companion!

Watch Painting with Gouache en Plein Air above or on the Opus YouTube Channel to find out how you can reactivate both your gouache and your art practice by painting on location. It’s time to book your next flight into plein air adventure!
